You know that phrase: “it take a village to raise a child?” Well, entrepreneur Nick Friedman argues it’s going to take a village (and then some) to raise the American economy back up to where it needs to be.
Friedman, co-founder and president of College Hunks Hauling Junk and College Hunks Moving; co-author of the 'Effortless Entrepreneur' has a post titled "The Patriotism of Entrepreneurship" in today's Huffington Post. He writes:
As the presidential campaign draws near, I have realized that my role as an entrepreneur provides me with a unique opportunity to make a patriotic contribution. As a business owner, I have the power to create jobs and help fuel a stalled economy. Beyond the confines of my own business, though, I also have the power to help rejuvenate all the tangential businesses that help my own company run.
Friedman, whose company has 43 franchise locations, outlines some of the business decisions he’ll be making in the near future to help restore America, including hiring more veterans and assisting returning soldiers in becoming franchise owners.
These initiatives are simple and can be easily replicated across all industries. It's time for small business owners to embrace their patriotic duty and start making business decisions that benefit not only their own company but the U.S. economy. The support of small business owners from across the nation may not be the cure, but it is surely a catalytic treatment that will send our economy on its way to recovery.
What do you think of Friedman's suggestions? What kind of steps are you taking as a small business owner to help America get back on its' feet?
