Why We’re Supporting #MicroBizMattersDay
Setting up and running a business can be a daunting prospect, and it is a lot of hard work. But it is also one of the most rewarding things that you can do and can be one of the most positive changes someone can make for themselves and the community they live in.
In a society dominated by celebrity culture, celebrity entrepreneurs have emerged as inspirational figures. But we at the FSB believe that anyone who has a good idea and takes a risk to put it into practice and grow a business is an entrepreneur. The vast majority will never be celebrities, but they still enrich the lives of themselves and those around them.
So this is why we are supporting Micro Biz Matters Day 2016 for these people, the people that we champion – the Real-Life Entrepreneurs #microbizmatters2016
