Do you remember when you were a kid and thought you could do anything? As children, we dream of the happily ever after. How were we to know that happily ever after was within reach due to our own hustle, sacrifice and dedication? Small business owners, like you, have changed the way we think about what is possible. Even when things are tough, your vision stays clear. You are an entrepreneur, an innovator, and most importantly, you support the vitality of our communities.
This week is your week as we recognize National Small Business Week. To all the small businesses out there, WE SEE YOU…your passion, your sacrifice, your risks. Like you, we started small. We’ve walked in your shoes. And (like you), we see risk as an opportunity. A chance to do something bold. To make the world a better place ― and you’ve done just that.
