If I thought (and I did) in 1985 that small business needed a hand with compliance and government regulation, I could have never imagined the burden in 2016.
31 years has done nothing but increase the burden our government puts on the backs of our small business owners.
A recent survey from NFIB (National Federation of Independent Business) says the top 3 concerns for business owners are:
- Rising cost of health benefits (fueled by increased requirements of coverage)
- The burden of complying with government regulations
- Our economy.
If I had a magic wand I’d fix #1 and #3, but alas… only in my fairy-tale. I do, however, have a great solution to the second largest concern. The reason we decided to begin this business was because we all love The American Dream and it was our desire to help small business by taking the government compliance piece from them, so they (you) could concentrate on running your business and living your dream.
I’d love to hear your story. Why did you take the plunge and begin your company? What was/is the dream? Knowing your dream encourages me and others, please share your story with us here in the comments. I promise we’ll treat it gently. It’s why we do what we do, after all.
