THE PRIVILEGE OF BEING ABLE TO HAVE DREAMS, IDEAS AND GOALS COME TO FRUITION, IS THE CORE OF WHAT WE ARE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE BECAUSE OF THE FREEDOMS THAT ARE OURS IN AMERICA.

- Denise Burnett Stewart

SMALL BUSINESS DRIVES THE AMERICAN ECONOMY. IT THRIVES AND SURVIVES NO MATTER WHAT MAY BE GOING ON IN THE MAIN ECONOMY.

UNLESS WE PROMOTE ENTREPRENEURSHIP, WE WILL NOT HAVE AN EXCITING BUSINESS ATMOSPHERE IN OUR COUNTRY.

Thoughts on Entrepreneurship:

“‘A significant number of those Memphis companies we tend to most admire started as entrepreneurial ventures. This fact is repeated in cities throughout the U.S. Therefore, it stands to reason that entrepreneurship is a critical, catalytic factor in technological and service industry advances and, thus, in overall business expansion and employment growth. There is also a leverage factor at work, because the successes of entrepreneurial companies force their competitors to improve or perish.”
