Happy National Small Business Week!
by Clements & Shackle
This week is National Small Business Week. Over half of Americans either work for or own a small business. If that were not enough to celebrate, two of every three new jobs created in the United States each year are a result of small business.
In his proclamation of national small business week, President Obama stated that, "Our small businesses represent what is best about our Nation -- the idea that with determination and responsibility, anyone can build a better life for themselves and their loved ￼ones. For more than two centuries, American innovation has sparked ideas that have changed our lives and the course of our history for the better. This week, we recognize the role small businesses play as pillars of our communities and engines of our growing economy, and we rededicate ourselves to fostering the entrepreneurial spirit that has forged the strongest economy the world has ever known." At Clements & Shackle, we could not agree more.
If you own a small business, assist in running one, or are just getting one started, please give Clements & Shackle a call. Our goal is to help you and your business be successful.
