By | source:Entrepreneur May 11th, 2015

As a small business owner myself, this infographic really hit home. Small businesses have always been a vital part of our country’s economy. In fact, small business account for 54 percent of all U.S. sales.Yeah, that’s right – but I thought corporate American ran everything? Another interesting fact about small businesses is their tendency to donate money for non-profits. Not just a little more either – they donate 250 percent more than larger firms.

Although running your own business can be tiring, there is a certain freedom from being self-employed. There’s more flexibility in work hours if need be, and the business owner can pursue their passion as diligently as they want. Want to spend 20 hours a week? How about 70 hours a week? Small business owners experience a wide spectrum of working time to make sure the job gets done.

If you’re on the fence about starting your own business, just do it. 84 percent of small business owners said they would do it all over again. It’s time for you to try it for once.
