Despite what you are hearing the media about the plans of governments and large corporate entities, the economy will recover in any large part not due to their efforts, but rather from the efforts of small businesses – from entrepreneurs. They have been,are, and always will be the creative force in the world.
Whereas large corporations tend to worry more about the numbers (mostly their costs), small businesses focus on the creation of value for customers.
Whereas governmental agencies can only spend money that they have first taken from others, small business risk everything even their own personal nest eggs in their belief in that their product, service or knowledge is of value to others.
Entrepreneurs are the ultimate altruists. They are the most purely other-centered people on the planet. They believe that their ideas will make the world a better place.
To see the economic recovery in action, look no further than your neighborhood.
