Owners of small businesses in the U.S. are the backbone and spirit of the men and women that are in the trenches every day trying to put our economy back on course. They employ millions of hard working people and have supplied over 65% of the private sector jobs to the economy.Being in the one of the worst economic times in history, Small business has taken a severe blow to the underpinning of its stability and sturdiness. With a credit crunch, forcing to lay off thousands of employees, small businesses have been forced to sell their business or close the doors altogether says Tom Giampapa of sell businesses.
The words coming out of Washington is that they understand the problem of small business and are trying to help small businesses recover from this recession. The U.S. Government is trying to create market conditions that will give small businesses a jump start bringing them out of this slump and begin hiring back employees. Is small business down for the count? Not if they have anything to do with it. Small businesses are survivors and will claw their way back into thriving enterprises that will become stronger than ever learning from this terrible experience they and their families have had to go through.
