as a business with a small number of employees. The legal definition of "small" often varies by country and industry, but is generally under 100 employees. These businesses are normally privately owned corporations, partnerships, or sole proprietorships
For those of us who own and operate a small business or dream of having their own business in the future, small business is much more than those definitions.
The small business is:
1. A place where dreams can come true
2. Somewhere that allows us to control our own destiny
3. Encourages its owner to be creative
4. A first challenges that people with a career in a cubicle, could never imagine
5. Is the place an entrepreneur goes to work because they want to, not because they have to
6. The small business is the jobs growth engine of the country. 80% of the new jobs are created by small business.
7. Offers an entrepreneur the opportunity to build something greater than themselves
