America is home to more than 28 million small businesses that employ 57 million workers. And when you add owners and employees together, that’s a community of roughly 85 million hardworking Americans dependent on the success of small business—most of the private-sector workforce. Small business owners are America’s most important job creators: U.S. small businesses accounted for almost two-thirds of the net new jobs created between 1993 and 2013—a grand total of 11.8 million new career opportunities. In 2012, small businesses created more than 2.1 million net new jobs. Small businesses are the country’s main job creators because they are often growing and looking for new markets to expand. To do so, they need additional employees along the way. Large businesses, on the other hand, generally stay the same size, hiring new employees to replace departing ones. Unfortunately, high taxes and recent government regulations in health care, finance, and labor disproportionately hurt small businesses and prevent them from growing and adding new jobs to the economy. Big business with big profits can afford to comply with red tape in a way that small businesses just starting out cannot. As a result, small businesses still haven’t recovered completely from the Great Recession—and it shows by the chronically weak labor market. More than 94 million Americans are not working or actively looking for jobs. The labor force participation rate—which measures the percentage of employees and job-seekers in the U.S.—is less than 63 percent, the lowest figure since the late 1970s. To bring small businesses back, and strengthen the job market, job-killing taxes and regulations must be rolled back. Job creators should be encouraged to hire more employees, not forced to reduce career opportunities. With 85 million people depending on the success of small business, it’s easy to see why small business is too big to fail.

Uncle Sam needs taxpayer dollars to pay for things like schools, fire fighters, and the military. There are all sorts of different taxes: income taxes, payroll taxes and sales taxes just to name a few. But individuals aren’t the only ones who pay taxes—businesses pay income taxes too. Businesses that are set up as corporations pay taxes on their income at the US corporate tax rate of around 35 percent—one of the highest in the developed world. Countries like Ireland and Switzerland have corporate tax rates well under 25 percent, which can give companies based there a competitive advantage. But there’s another taxed group that we’re forgetting…small businesses. There are 29 million of them in the US and they employ nearly 56 million people. That’s a total of 85 million people dependent on the success of small businesses! Small businesses are most often set up as sole proprietorships, partnerships or another designation called an S-corp. But the money they make isn’t taxed at the corporate rate. The profits earned by these small businesses are “passed through” to the owner and counted as individual income on their personal tax return. That’s why you might hear small businesses referred to as “Pass-throughs.” These entrepreneurs can pay tax rates as high as 40 percent not including additional state and local taxes, that means many American small businesses are being taxed at a higher rate than businesses anywhere in the world. Why should you care? Because high taxes hurt small businesses ability to grow and expand, causing them to raise prices or even trim jobs to stay within their budget constraints. Lowering taxes for small businesses or “pass-throughs” results in the growth of small businesses—allowing them to provide more jobs and boost the economy for everyone. After all two thirds of all new jobs come from small businesses and lowering taxes can have a big effect on the entire economy for all Americans. So the next time you hear someone supporting an increase in tax rates on businesses, remember that very important group of small business owners and the 85 million people dependent on their success.

During the Great Recession of 2007 and 2008, millions of jobs were shed at companies across the country. As the economy began to recover, it wasn’t the corporations or multinational companies that started to hire, it was small businesses in big and small cities alike that showed signs of life. Today, nearly a decade after the crash, the Small Business Revolution is thriving, as the entrepreneurial spirit sweeps across the country. The Small Business Revolution, brought to life by the Deluxe Corporation, is a celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit. This documentary showcases the power and joy and passion of small business owners, from a local barbershop in Chicago to a food truck in Little Rock; a pizzeria in San Francisco to a business incubator in Detroit. In developing the Small Business Revolution, Deluxe sought not to point fingers at what caused the economic meltdown, but instead to celebrate the entrepreneurial spirit that all small business owners exude every day. The message of the documentary is one of hope and perseverance. As one business owner notes: “This is the hardest thing I’ve ever done.” It is true, small business is tough, yet there is joy in what is hard. Peppered with expert commentary from the likes of Robert Herjavec, celebrated entrepreneur and star of Shark Tank, Maria Contreras-Sweet, former administrator of the Small Business Administration, Melinda Emerson, the Small Biz Lady and a dozen unique small businesses from across the country, this documentary will help define the spirit and drive of small business owners as they share in their quest to capture a piece of the American Dream. #SmallBusinessRevolution #Deluxe Subscribe to our YouTube channel: https://goo.gl/kVZveD Visit Here to Learn More: http://smallbusinessrevolution.org/ Follow us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/smallbizrev Follow us on Twiiter: https://twitter.com/smbizrevolution Follow us on Instagram: http://instagram.com/smallbusinessrevolution/ Championed by Deluxe and hosted by chief brand and communications officer, Amanda Brinkman, the Small Business Revolution is a movement created to shine a spotlight on the vital impact that small businesses have on our economy, our communities and our daily lives.

James Jarrell Pickle (October 11, 1913 -- June 18, 2005), also known as "J.J. 'Jake' Pickle", was a United States Representative from the 10th congressional district of Texas from 1963 to 1995. Pickle was born in Roscoe, Texas. He acquired his nickname Jake from a mischievous character he portrayed in a family play when he was four years old. Pickle was an Eagle Scout and recipient of the Distinguished Eagle Scout Award from the Boy Scouts of America. Pickle attended the public schools in Big Spring and received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at Austin where he was a member of the 1934 Southwest Conference championship swimming team and the student body president as a senior in 1937. He was also a member of the Friar Society. Pickle was introduced by future governor John Connally to Congressman Lyndon Johnson, who served as his political mentor. He assisted the latter in his 1940 election campaign and assisted Lady Bird Johnson in running the Congressional office. When the United States entered WWII, Pickle joined the Navy as a gunnery officer and was stationed on the USS St. Louis and the USS Miami, surviving three torpedo attacks. When the war ended, he, Johnson, and Connally helped found a radio station (KVET) in Austin, Texas. After 10 years in the advertising business, he joined the Democratic Election Executive Committee of Texas in 1957. From 1961 to 1963, Pickle was a member of the Texas Employment Commission, since renamed the Texas Workforce Commission. He served under appointment of Governor Price Daniel. Pickle was elected as a Democrat to the 88th Congress, by special election, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of United States Representative Homer Thornberry, who became a U.S. District judge. Pickle was reelected 15 times before retiring at the conclusion of his 1993-94 term. His campaign trademark was a "squeaky pickle" rubber toy he handed out to those he met in area parades. While in the House, Pickle rose through the ranks to become the third ranking Democrat on the House Ways and Means Committee. He was one of only six Southern Congressmen to vote for the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and went on to play a key role in passing major Social Security reform legislation in 1983 to save the system from insolvency. The reforms increased the payroll tax rate, slowly increased the full benefit retirement age to 67 and taxed some of the benefits. He considered this legislation his greatest accomplishment. Pickle was able to steer research money to the University of Texas, and today the University's J. J. Pickle Research Campus is named in his honor. He was influential in the city of Austin, as well, most notably for relocating Austin's main airport from Robert Mueller Municipal Airport to Austin-Bergstrom International Airport. He was also instrumental in bringing the SEMATECH and the MCC consortia to Austin. Before Pickle left for World War II in 1942, he married Ella Nora "Sugar" Critz. They had one daughter together. Critz died in 1952 and Pickle married Beryl Bolton McCarroll in 1960. Pickle was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1991 and lymphoma in 2001. He died at his home in Austin on June 18, 2005 of complications from his cancer and is interred at the Texas State Cemetery there. Peggy Pickle was Jake Pickle's only daughter. She still makes contributions to the University of Texas at Austin on her father's behalf. In 1997, Jake and Peggy Pickle wrote a book together called Jake with a foreword by former Texas governor Ann Richards. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/JJ_Pickle

In a country built by immigrants, numbers represent the strength and ability to move forward both culturally and economically. Such is the case for Latinos, a growing force in the United States currently representing 18 percent of the overall population — a number expected to grow to 30 percent by 2060. The economic impact Latinos have in the country as a group is growing at a steady rate, and according to Nielsen, a global information measurement firm, Latinos are "the most influential segment since the baby boomers," representing a $1.5 trillion consumer market. The economic impact extends beyond the Latino consumer to the Latino entrepreneur. The State of Latino Entrepreneurship 2015 Report, created by the Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative (SLEI), highlighted data that reveal the economic impact that Latino-owned businesses (LOBs) have on the U.S. economy. Housed within Stanford University's Graduate School of Business, the Stanford Latino Entrepreneurship Initiative is a unique research collaboration between Stanford University and the Latino Business Action Network (LBAN), a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization located in Palo Alto, California. This report also debunked several myths regarding the markets and industries in which LOBs are found. Latinos are significantly impacting the growth in number of small businesses in the United States. The State of Latino Entrepreneurship 2015 report revealed that between 2007 and 2012, the number of LOBs grew by 46.9 percent compared to just 0.7 percent for non-Latino owned businesses, an extraordinary level of entrepreneurship that suggests Latinos play a substantial role in local job creation and economic development. A closer look at the growth in the number of small businesses between 2007 and 2012 shows that 86 percent of the growth in all small businesses during this time can be attributed to LOBs In fact, without LOBs the United States would see a serious drop in the number of small businesses.

Through innovative products, dedicated employees, and strong community roots, these entrepreneurs are responible for two thirds of all job Creation. That’s a lot of jobs. But high taxes and intrusive government regulation can eat away at budgets and hurt their ability to raise wages and hire new people. In fact, small business owners say that high fedreal tax rates are their number one concern. Most small businesses – 95 percent of them, in fact – are taxed through the owner, which mean these businesses are subject to federal tax rates that can reach 40 percent. Small businesses structured like this are commonly referred to as pass throughs. Imagine 40 cents of every new dollar earned going to the government. In any other circumstance, theft on this level would not be tolerated. Why is it for small businesses? Significant tax cuts for these small enterprises would turbo charge the U.S. economy. According to a recent poll of small business owners, a majority of respondents would use the financial savings from tax cuts to invest back into their businesses. This means hiring more people, raising wages, and expanding operations. By energizing America’s entrepreneurial through small business tax cuts, America’s middle class can experience greater job security, higher wages, and a more vibrant main street.

By Carolyn A. Winston and Addison Sims, Hosts of Let's Talk Biz This month on Let's Talk Biz we are focusing on the impact that small businesses and nonprofits have on the U.S. economy. You'll want to tune in to hear what our guests have to say about the outlook and the impact of small businesses. Most people think that the backbone of the U.S. economy is concentrated in a handful of Fortune 500 companies. The Fortune 500 companies do have an impact on the U.S. economy, but small businesses have a greater impact on the economy. Usually, small businesses do not make headline news; the media's attention is typically on Wall Street, but Main Street plays a significant role in the U.S. economy. In terms of employment and private (non-farm) gross domestic product small business drives the U.S. economy. Small business provides jobs and spurs our economic growth. If large corporations lay-off workers small businesses are the ones behind the scene creating jobs for displaced workers. The Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy reports that small businesses have been the driving force behind new job creation, generating between 60 percent and 80 percent of all new jobs annually over the past decade. Small businesses are responsive to consumer change and taste; contribute creativity, productivity, and ingenuity to technologies; and engage in global opportunities. Small businesses hire about 68 million workers, almost half of all private sector jobs. U.S. small business firms pay about 44 percent of the total U.S. private-sector payroll, according to the Small Business Administration, that is approximately $2.1 trillion of the total (non-farm) private-sector payroll of $4.8 trillion. Small businesses have a significant impact on our communities. Small business owners represent a diverse group of individuals, of all ages, from all educational, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. Small businesses represent the moral, social, and economic values of modern society which form the backbone of local communities. They participate in community activities, support local charities, and share concerns about education, crime, and the environment. Small businesses owners help fight poverty. Forming a small business offers many individuals the opportunity to rise above the poverty line. Now, that we have shared some exciting statistics about small businesses and their support for nonprofits let us share some key findings about the outlook of small businesses: • Small businesses firms hiring has slowed because of a distressed economy • There remains a need to streamline rules, regulations, etc. for small businesses • Access to capital is a challenge and it is hard to get bank loans and more small businesses are using credit cards to finance their businesses Let's Talk Biz's Best Biz pick of the week is Evernote.

As the world gazes admiringly at Germany's economic success, we discover why the country's small and medium-sized companies have performed so well Subscribe NOW to The Economist: http://econ.st/1Fsu2Vj On the outskirts of the sleepy town of Gutersloh in northwest Germany is Miele, a company that's been making kitchen and laundry appliances in the area for over a hundred years. Across the country over ten thousand of its employees produce over a million washing machines and tumble dryers every year. With annual sales of 2.8 billion euros the company now has eight plants across Germany. Miele is one of many small and medium sized German businesses known collectively as the Mittelstand. Firms like these provide the muscle to the country's economic might. Other nations may quake in the face of competition from Asia but not Germany. Its luxury manufacturers sell posh cars to the new Asian rich, and the metal stand makes machine tools and equipment that Chinese firms use to make consumer goods. But what makes the Mittelstand so successful? In recent years politicians have done a lot to help. In reforming the country's labour market successive governments have been ahead of the curve but so have Mittelstand companies themselves - constantly innovating, adapting, and evolving. By avoiding debt, specializing in niche markets, developing product related services, and investing in vocational training, Germany's small and medium-sized companies have remained at the cutting edge of global manufacturing Miele is still family-owned. Marcus Miele whose great-grandfather Karl co-founded the company in 1899 is one of its managing directors. Like many Mittelstand businessman he refuses to saddle the company with debt even if it means slower growth. Just a few miles down the road is Beckhoff Automation another successful family-owned company. It started out as an electrical installation shop in the 1950s and has since turned itself into a multi-million euro company - selling specialized industrial computers to customers all over the world. And Beckhoff doesn't just design its products here it also makes them. Visit one of its production lines and you're confronted with a scene you'd usually expect to see in China or Taiwan. This is where it makes the motherboards for its computers. By its refusal to outsource jobs like these Beckhoff maintain strict control over the quality of its products - but it also means the company can respond quickly to an increase in demand and that demand often comes from other German companies. Hans Beckhoff inherited the business from his father and has overseen the company's rapid growth over the past thirty years. He says that by sticking together, Mittelstand firms have created a value-added chain. In other European countries there are plenty of University graduates and unskilled workers but not much in between. In Germany vocational training is much better. Skilled blue-collar workers are the heart and soul of the Mittelstand. Not only trained to operate the machines but also to understand how they work. By offering academic apprenticeships a dual system where University students spend as much time working as studying firms like Miele play a crucial role in keeping Germany's unemployment levels low. The mittelstand's success has attracted admiring glances from the rest of Europe but it's built on foundations that may be hard to copy - from Germany's family traditions to its skilled workers. Like Silicon Valley, the mittelstand remains one of a kind Get more The Economist Follow us: https://twitter.com/TheEconomist Like us: https://www.facebook.com/TheEconomist View photos: https://instagram.com/theeconomist/ The Economist videos give authoritative insight and opinion on international news, politics, business, finance, science, technology and the connections between them.

U.K. and U.S. unemployment rises, jobs are being lost, insolvencies rise, people are losing houses and assets, small businesses struggle to keep afloat, high street shopping is declining, GDP still in decline. These are the classic signs of a deep recession which we are told that we are slowly emerging from- yet the negative figures tell a different story.

IDAHO FALLS – Small businesses are the life blood of our local economy. In the cities of Idaho Falls and Ammon, there are nearly 500 small businesses. Every year, the President proclaims a week in May as Small Business Week to acknowledge and celebrate the importance of small businesses to our community, and here’s why: Small businesses in the U.S. employ nearly 50 percent of all private sector employment and make up nearly 41 percent of private sector employment. Small businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy. With National Small Business Week, Better Business Bureau Northwest + Pacific (BBB NW+P) wants to recognize the accomplishments of small businesses all over eastern Idaho. “National Small Business Week is an opportunity for all of us to recognize the impact local organizations and foundations have in our communities,” said BBB NW+P President and CEO Tyler Andrew. “It’s our honor to celebrate the wins of small business owners across eastern Idaho and encourage others to do the same this week and throughout the year.” According to the Small Business Administration (SBA), more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business and create nearly two of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. Running a small business can be tough. Most survive their first year but only about one-third survive 10 years or longer. Better Business Bureau and its partners proudly offer the following resources to help small businesses succeed: Torch Talk – online tools and resources geared to helping businesses grow and thrive. Outreach – on-site visits to participating small businesses by the BBB Marketplace team. Social Media – free giveaways and business spotlights on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. SBA Activities – free networking conference, Twitter chat and hackathon aimed at finding solutions for businesses. BBB likes to highlight outstanding entrepreneurism, small business owners and the communities who support them. To learn more on what is happening in the Treasure Valley and how to nominate a small business for the BBB Torch Awards, please visit the Small Business Resource Page.

Zach DeGregorio, CPA www.WolvesAndFinance.com New daily live streams 8:00pm MST on my other YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCyA6hunVgBiE3QEDn9GpQtw In this video, we are going to continue defining the key characteristics of growth. We will use these concepts to help answer the question why so many small businesses fail. The US Small Business Administration (SBA) collects data on small business startups. These are important numbers to understand. We are going to be putting together a lot of information in this video, so bear with me. If you have watched a lot of my videos, I have talked about a lot of these concepts, but here we are combining them to talk about growth. Small businesses are important. They reflect the part of the economy that is new growth. You have a lot of small businesses starting up, some of the them are going to fail, but some of them will grow into the massive companies of the future. If we look at failure rates, the SBA reports that roughly 33% fail within the first two years, and 50% fail within the first five. So 1/3 of small businesses do not survive past two years… that is a lot. What is interesting is these statistics are fairly consistent over time. And these statistics reflect how finance people think about markets. Finance people usually will not invest in a business with more than a 30% risk profile. When we talk about interest rates, they usually exist within a range of 5% to 30% and they reflect the risk profile of the investment. So 5% may be fairly risk free government bonds, 15% might be corporate stock in a large company, and 30% would be a high risk startup. Anything that is riskier, you might as well take your money to Vegas, because you are just gambling at that point. Now the reason you would invest in such a high risk investment (30%) is because the higher the risk, the higher the return. For a small business, there is a lot of risk, but if that small business turns into a massive company, you are going to make a ton of money. So you are going to expect a high rate of return to compensate you for all the risk you are taking on. So if you are in the small business area, how do you make sure you are not in the 30% that fail. That is the key question we are going to look at. One of things I have seen small business owners struggle with, is they do not understand the characteristics of growth. All businesses grow with certain characteristics. If your business plan does not align with how your finances are likely to play out, you are going to run into trouble. So I am going to talk about what we know about Growth. Let us review what we have discussed so far: 1) Growth exists 2) Growth continues forever Now I want to add one more characteristic. 3) Growth is exponential This means that growth occurs faster and faster every year. The economy does not just grow every year forever, it is constantly speeding up. When you look at a graph of economic activity, it constantly curves upward. We see this when we look at technology. We see exponential improvements in technology, and we also see this in financial markets. Individual businesses may fail or succeed. The businesses that are successful are the ones that tap into the overall exponential growth of the economy. You have to realize, these are not just my opinions. These are the assumptions the entire global financial system is based on. Stock prices, bank loans, interest rates all are derived from mathematical equations that are based on these three assumptions. The financial world models growth as exponentially increasing forever. You should realize this because it impacts the decisions you make in your business every day.

(www.abndigital.com) Small businesses are typically the engine of growth in an economy. Studies have shown that small and medium enterprises account for as much as 55% of GDP and over 65% of employment in high income countries. In middle income countries, the numbers rise to about 70% of GDP and about 95% of total employment. However, recent studies on the Nigerian economy indicate that SMEs account for less than 50% of total economic output. This relatively low figure indicates the growth potential of small businesses in Nigeria and the need to support their growth.

To honor the significant impact small businesses have on the states economy, the governor has declared this week Texas Small Business Week. for more information: http://governor.state.tx.us/news/press-release/14672/ Key Points: According to the U.S. Small Business Administrations (SBA) most recent data, in 2006 nearly half of the states private sector employees worked for one of Texas more than 386,000 small businesses, which the SBA defines as a business with fewer than 500 employees.
