Three Cheers for Small Business

As a small business owner, I get excited about articles that acknowledges the 23 million of us slugging it out every day.

On the front page of WSJ today was the headline:
Small Companies Slowly Build
Momentum in the Job Market

I know the headline isn’t as exciting as I am excited, but here is a tidbit from the piece:

“Smaller companies have less of a cushion, so when demand picks up, they have so little fat there, they have to hire. So they will be the ones to generate jobs,” says Mark Zandi, chief economist for, a West Chester, Pa., research firm.

That describes us. We are seriously considering adding a head to keep up with what is going on. We’ll start looking now and have someone on board for the New Year.

Hip Hip Hooray!
Hip Hip Hooray!
Hip Hip Hooray!

One thought on “Three Cheers for Small Business

  1. Yes, small business is certainly the engine that drives the economy. It’s especially nice to see the WSJ mentioning this, as the media so much focuses on what the large corporations are doing. You always hear what large company is doing layoffs, or whatever, but you hardly hear about what’s going on with small businesses.
