President's Message: February 7, 2018Posted on: 07, February, 2018
Jeff Peevy, AMAM
If you are reading this, you are likely an employee or owner of a small business, because our industry is an industry of small businesses. We often think of ourselves as "victims" by being a majority of small businesses. The truth is, we are not so unique, as most industries in our nation are made up of small businesses. According to the Small Business and Enterprise Council, 89.6% of U.S. businesses have less than 20 employees. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and with few exceptions are faced with growing liability issues, the momentum of technology changes and employee turnover. Sound familiar? Take heart, since there are nearly 26 million businesses in the U.S. like yours, you are not alone, and there's a lot of resources and support to help you be successful. We intend to be one of them!
