Every Big Business Was Once a Small Business, Too

So it’s Small Business Week, but I was thinking: isn’t every business technically a “small business” at one point or another? The biggest companies in the world — Apple, Wal-Mart, Ralph Lauren, etc. — all had to start somewhere and then they became huge and sort of vilified by the public, for different reasons. But Apple, for example, started in Steve Jobs’ garage and now we all know what it has become, for better or worse.

So, I encourage small businesses to take pride in their efforts and understand that becoming bigger helps the wallet but does not always work in the court of public opinion. People enjoy small businesses because they work harder for your appreciation and usually have great prices. They also work hard to succeed, and isn’t that the American Dream in the first place?
