Celebrate National Small Business Week

In recognition of National Small Business Week – a week dedicated to recognizing and honoring the outstanding entrepreneurs and small business owners located across all 50 states and U.S. territories – which runs from Sunday, May 5th through Saturday, May 11th,  the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), the nation’s leading advocate and resource for the self-employed and micro-business community, “applauded the entrepreneurial spirit of our nation’s small businesses who help strengthen our nation’s economy every day.”

“Millions of small business owners from every single State and from every demographic you can think of contribute each and every day to providing a critical boost to the overall American economy,” said Keith Hall, President and CEO.  “The main reason our economy is strong and prosperous is due to the millions of hard-working small business owners who have chosen self-employment, not only to support their own families, but also the families benefiting from the new jobs they create. 


“Over 30 million self-employed and small business owners – from accountants to builders and bakers – operate throughout every corner of the country. These unique and creative entrepreneurs, including the budding independent entrepreneurs of the sharing economy, are ensuring our country and economy remain strong.”
