They're an economic powerhouse and there are millions of them across the country. They create jobs, improve the country's overall quality of life and represent the best of what the American Dream has to offer.
They are entrepreneurs, and this is their month.
President Barack Obama recently proclaimed November to be National Entrepreneurship Month. It's an opportunity to celebrate the women and men who lend their "talents and passions to solving problems, generate growth and prosperity, and turn dreams into new goods and services."
It's really no wonder the president of the United States would want to honor entrepreneurs. After all, the country's founding fathers possessed innovative spirits, creative minds and the steely resolve to risk everything to create something great.
Since then, entrepreneurs have been a part of the rich tapestry that makes the country a world leader in medicine, technology, business and product development.
Here's a look at why America's 27 million entrepreneurs deserve to be celebrated:
Entrepreneurs create a brighter future
Can you imagine a world without iPhones, music streaming or apps? There was a time in the not-too-distant past when these things didn't exist.
Entrepreneurs create a brighter future for everyone, including themselves. The men and women who dream big, take risks and shoot for the stars often end up standing in the spotlight as they reap the rewards of their hard work--right along with their customers.
Untapped passion is untapped potential
What would have happened if Steve Jobs hadn't followed his dreams? The world would likely be a much different (and less functional) place.
Thankfully, Jobs was passionate about creating wonderful technology that improves people's lives. He put passion to work to create one of the most important and prized companies in the world. He did what he loved because he knew: untapped passion is untapped potential.
Jobs once said, "You've got to find what you love. The only way to do great work is to love what you do."
The American spirit is alive and well
Like the country's founding fathers, most entrepreneurs are fiercely independent. They have a dream and they pursue it with every ounce of effort they can muster.
And that's what the American dream is all about.
Each year, more than 500,000 new businesses are started by entrepreneurs. Some fail. Many succeed by creating jobs, serving the community and improving the quality of life for others. All keep the American spirit of independence and achievement alive and well. That's worth celebrating.
