What are the benefits of WORKING FOR YOURSELF in Florida?

August 1, 2013

Business Brokers report have consistently indicated that roughly two percent of the U.S. population fall into that unique category of entrepreneurs; people who own their business. What is the mystique about being an entrepreneur? Is part of the allure the concept that the owner of a company makes the decisions?  An owner structures the operations to reflect his or her philosophy, determining how the business should be run?

The Florida entrepreneur tends to be highly motivated, an individual willing to make tough decisions, and often fills many roles within the organization. Small firms represent 99.7% of all employer firms and they employ half of the entire labor force in the private sector. Of the net new jobs created in our country, small business generated between 60% and 80% during every single year over the last decade.

According to the SBA’s most recent figures, small business makes up 97% of all identified exporters – and produces over 28% of the nation’s export value. Innovative smaller firms produce 13 times more patents per employee than large firms. So we shouldn’t be surprised that small business employs over 40% of all the high-tech workers in the United States, and seems always to get more bang for the buck.

The entrepreneur, who has successfully operated and grown a company, provides needed goods and or services to customers and has established an effective environment – culture for employees.  As owners grow their business, they typically increase their equity and the value of their companies.
