May 4 – 8, 2015 is National Small Business Week. Every year since 1963, the U.S. President has declared a week to recognize small businesses and the impact they have in the U.S. It is a week to celebrate America’s entrepreneurs and the innovation and advancement that small businesses produce every day. According to Maria Contreras-Sweet, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, “National Small Business Week is a chance to honor our nation’s 28 million small businesses and renew our commitment to fostering the entrepreneurial spirit that is central to the American experience.”
Take some time this week to get out of the trenches and reflect on your small business and the impact it has on the people you serve and the country you have helped shape.
