Funding a Franchise: Why Crowdfunding is Not Your Best Option

Funding a Franchise: Why Crowdfunding is Not Your Best Option

What Would The World Be Like Without Entrepreneurs?

What would the world be like without entrepreneurs?

So my day began with my iPod alarm and the smell of freshly brewed Starbucks coffee. I rushed to get ready and then jumped into my Ford Focus to get to work. On the way there, my boss called me on my iPhone to ask if I would pick up some Dunkin Donuts for the morning meeting.

If Steve Jobs (Apple), Howard Schultz (Starbucks), Henry Ford (Ford Automobiles) and William Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts) had not been entrepreneurs, my day would have started very differently. I am not alone when I say; many entrepreneurs have changed our lives when they stopped dreaming and put their visions into action.

Although owning your own business is the foundation of the American dream, polite society will tell you it is a risky adventure with a path full of failures. What they do not tell you is that this path will also allow you to fulfill your greatest passions and generate ideas that may change society forever.

Imagine if Steve Jobs never started Apple…

If you had the opportunity to answer this question again… “What do you want to do when you grow up?” How would you answer it, especially if you knew ahead of time you were going to make such a powerful impact on the world?

If you have an entrepreneur inside you wanting to get out, tell us!

Looking forward to hearing your stories…
