Owning Your Own Small Business IS Recession Proof!

Today I would like to share a great article written by Jessica Swanson, founder of Shoestring Marketing.  Jessica does a great job highlighting why owning your own business is such a smart move in economically unstable times:

It’s time to face the facts. Our economy recently passed through a hopelessly dangerous situation. Everywhere you looked, people were being downsized, losing their jobs, and living precariously paycheck to paycheck . People from all over the United States were feeling scared, insecure and unstable. We may be climbing out of the recession…but, that doesn’t mean that we’re out of the dark.

The average person says that there isn’t anything that can be done about the economy and that we are all at its mercy. I have chosen to go in a completely different direction. I believe that there is a wonderful way to take control of our precarious situations and secure our financial futures. The answer lies in owning your own business. But, most importantly I want to highlight why owning your own business is such a smart move in economically unstable times.

Research suggests:

•In the last twenty years, no matter the economy, small businesses (operated by 1-5 individuals) have continued to rise and grow stronger.

•More millionaires are created from owning their own businesses than from any other business model.

•Self-employed households make, on average, five times more than traditionally employed households.

•Experts such as Donald Trump, Paul Zane Pilzer and Robert Kiyosaki all claim that owning your own business is one of the “smartest success strategies” of our time.

•Many experts believe that the number of individuals who own their own businesses will grow exponentially over the next five years, no matter the condition of the economy.

These five points prove that starting your own business is certainly not a pipe dream. In fact, more than ever before, owning a business could mean the difference between your financial success or financial failure.
