Encourages Consumers to Use NASE’s “Small Business Locator” to Identify & Connect with Small Businesses Across the Country

DALLAS, TX – Ahead of this week’s Small Business Saturday – a national day established to support small businesses across the country – the National Association for the Self-Employed (NASE), the nation’s leading advocate and resource for the self-employed and micro-business community, unveiled a new infographic highlighting the economic power of America’s small business community. 

“The millions of small businesses across our country continue to be the backbone of America’s economy,”said Keith Hall, President and CEO of NASE.  “Over 23 million self-employed and small business owners, located in every community and in every sector throughout the United States, provide the fuel for our economy.  The simple fact is that when America’s small businesses do well, the American economy thrives.  During Small Business Saturday this week and throughout the year, I hope consumers understand the importance of buying American and buying local by supporting our small business community.”

The infographic released today by the National Association for the Self-Employed shows that in 2014:

  • 63% of new, private-sector jobs were created by small businesses;
  • and that 2014 Small Business Saturday sales surpassed $14.3 billion.
