It's Small Business Week ~ Let's Celebrate!


Beginning Sunday, May 5th, 
we celebrate 
"National Small Business Week". 

It is a time to honor our nation's entrepreneurial spirit, celebrate how far Small Business has come, and realize how far we still need to go.

Sponsored by the Small Business Administration, this annual event began as a way to recognize our nation's top small business owners and those who support and advocate for small business.   

"As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation, and increase America’s global competitiveness". 

Learn more about the events slated for Small Business Week, both around our nation and online, on the SBA Website!

  • Use the hashtag #SmallBusinessWeek in your social posts to share what you are doing to honor Small Business. 
  • Follow the hashtag #SmallBusinessWeek to find out what other small businesses are up to.
  •  Check out the live streams on the Small Business Administration Website.
  • Share Your Story! Let others know how and why you started your own Small Business. 

All entrepreneurs have a story. While many are similar ~ we wanted to be our own boss or needed more flexibility ~ there are also others who are more unique.

But no matter what, every entrepreneur's story is interesting.

I started my small business, Access Profiles, Inc., for many of the usual reasons. I wanted the opportunity to be there while my children were young and still earn some money to contribute to the family. 

While that continued to be a driving motivation, it is what I learned about myself along the way that really surprised me.

I discovered my true strengths and weaknesses, and how to make them work for me and my business. I also found how important it was to build a strong relationship with my clients ~ one based on trust, communication, and honesty.

First and foremost, entrepreneurship has been a journey. 


A journey filled with many twists and turns, times of doubt and sacrifice. But I would not have had it any other way! 


You can find more about my story in "What I have Learned Starting My Own Business"!


So this week, and all year long, let's take the time to honor 
what Small Business 
has truly done for our country, and 
what it will continue to do. 
Are you ready?
