Celebrating the Engines of Our Economy – Small Business

Biz Rap Radio is the only radio show that celebrates the real engines of our economy and the drivers of both employment and economic growth – entrepreneurs and small businesses. Did you know that most new jobs in the United States are created by small businesses? Did you know that the majority of workers in the United States work for small businesses? Did you know there are close to 30 million small businesses in the United States?

30 Millions Small Businesses Creating Jobs

Yet read any business section in your local newspaper. Who’s in the headlines? General Motors, Comcast, American Airlines, Citibank and Facebook. It seems business news revolves around massive corporations with very little discussion about those 30 million small businesses that create most of the jobs and employ most of the people. Further, when it’s time to “fix” the economy, who is the Federal Reserve or the Government bailing out? These very same leviathan organizations, while the small businesses are left to fend for themselves, or worse, go bankrupt. Further, these big businesses pay millions of dollars to lobbyists to cook the rules and regulations so that these big businesses get preferential treatment, whether it be tax breaks, government handouts or exemptions from the very rules and regulations the rest of us have to live with.

Who’s Fighting for Small Business in America?

It’s time to fight back. And the key to fighting back is knowledge and information. You don’t have to be a Harvard MBA or a Six Sigma expert to run an efficient, organized and profitable small business that treats its customers well, is environmentally conscious and makes a nice profit for the owners.

So take a journey with Biz Rap Radio. Listen, learn and participate. Discover best practices, how to fund your business, how to navigate all of the complex rules and regulations, how to set yourself apart from the competition, and how to put more money in your pocket.

America Needs our Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses

America needs you. We need every entrepreneur and small business owner out there, and we need everyone who is thinking about starting a business, or about being an entrepreneur, to make it happen. We read somewhere that the American Dream was about owning a house with a white picket fence. That’s never been the American Dream and that concept of the American Dream was fabricated by someone who didn’t really want you to succeed. The real American Dream has always been about your individual freedom to achieve prosperity and success. And the more of our citizens who do that, the better off we are as a country. The best way of doing that is owning your own business, where you’re the master of your destiny and your paycheck isn’t tied into board room decision making. When the executives at a big company screw up, it’s not the executives who get canned—it’s you!

Individuals, Pursuing Their Own Economic Self Interest, Create Prosperity

Thousands of years ago business began when people discovered that they could sell something they produced to someone else who wanted it, for a profit. Since then business enterprise, and primarily small businesses, have been driving the economies of cities and countries, and improving the conditions of average people all over the globe. Are you a small business person? Are you an entrepreneur? Would you rather work for yourself than for the government or some big corporation? If so help us at Biz Rap Radio to fix the United States of America through a fundamental concept that individuals, pursuing their own economic interests in free markets, will create more prosperity for more people than can ever be achieved through government regulations and a planned economy.
