When Tina and Tony launched Enterprise Rockers in January 2012 their aim was to make life in micro business better. They wanted to ensure that those running the smallest of businesses, not only in the UK but right across the world, were recognised for the contribution they were making to local, regional, national and global economies.
Now, over 3 years later, they are happy that ‘micro business’ is used more in day-to -day business terminology but there is a still long way to go before those supporting, working in and even running businesses that employ 0 to 9 understand that many of the needs the self-employed and micro business owners have are very different to those of small and medium sized enterprise (SMEs) owners that have 10 to 250 employees.
#MicroBizMattersDay is a great day to give recognition to businesses around you that benefit your community but that may not be the biggest employer. It is a chance to:
- Promote products and services provided by businesses that employ 0 to 9.
- Highlight the different needs micro business owners have and the hurdles they face.
- Share the benefits of self-employment with others.
- Get to know the people around you that are running micro businesses and ensure you support and promote each other to make life in micro business better.
