We know that America is the land of opportunity, especially when it comes to the business world. Starting your own business in our country is by no means easy, but it is a popular choice according to the US Census Bureau. Our country has 3.6 million firms with 1-4 employees and another 1 million with 5-9 employees. Firms with 500 employees or more only account for less than 1 million of the registered businesses in America. Those numbers were somewhat startling to me. We all are well aware of the big, Fortune 500 type organizations, but, in reality, these businesses are few and far between.
