I have got to admit that I am a person who keeps his ear to the ground. The economy of the United States is hurting business in this country, and to say that we need to do something about it is understating the issue.
No I'm not asking the government to get involved I know that they can't do anything about it. The idea is to get some people that still have the American spirit in them to take a chance. We need to bring industry back to this country in a bad way.
Back in the day a person would risk their own money to start a business, and they may also borrow some from a bank or an investor. The tax hikes, and the new tax laws are making it very hard for people to risk their money to start a business.
The whole idea of America is that people have the freedom to make their dreams come true. As I have said before with the current tax code, and politicians trying to punish the rich people investors are quickly exiting this country.
I don't know if you have asked a bank to loan money on your business lately, but most of them won't do it. You may get lucky enough to find a small local bank that will help you, but none of the big banks are loaning to small business right now.
When you really look closely at the economy, and the things that are making it bad you can't really blame the banks for not loaning money right now. You have the government out there making the banks the bad guy is the situation by modifying home loans and making the banks lose money.
Then you have the government out there constantly trying to beat down the rich people. If you think about it these are the people who will be helping you get your business started unless you have all of the money to do it in your pocket right now.
Believe me if your start a business you will need the rich and successful people at some point in the process. If you think that going to the bank to get a loan for your business isn't the rich helping you start your business then you better think again.
As an American I just get sick of hearing how bad the rich people are. The whole idea of the United States was to give your the freedom to build your dreams. It seems that if a person builds their dreams these days and becomes a success that they are the bad guy.
Well i just don't buy it. Yes there are a few rich people out there who are doing horrible things with their money. But the bottom line is that the millionaire living down the street probably is just a normal guy that same as any other person, except that he is successful.
It's difficult to start a business in this day and age with the government regulations, and money printing we never know what's coming next. If you look at it the right way, we never really did know what was coming next that is the reason that starting a business is a risky process.
The truth is that the positive parts of it still out weighs the negative side, and if you have the vision, the fortitude, and the sheer guts to start a business, you could be one of the people who helps bring the economy back to this country.
Yes it's hard to get money to start a business. That is because of the economy, and the fact that people are worried about the future. If you look at it in the right light we have been here before. Not quite to this degree but we always seem to get through the bad things in this country.
If you keep trying to get your dream started it will happen at some point. I have had things happen while trying to get my shop going that have made me want to quit trying. I do a very modest amount of business right now, but that will all change soon.
To end this little story. I had an investor about four years ago, and he pulled out saying that he had to protect his money, he had to hide it from the government. It has taken me this long to locate another investor because of the economy, and the nefarious things that the federal government is doing.
I now have a new investor who is working on getting my deal finished. Yes he is a rich person, and I appreciate that fact that he is rich because that means that he can help me get my dream moving. I never gave up and now good things are happening.
Yes the economy is bad, but sometimes we just have to take a chance on the fact that this is the United States of America. We must keep trying, and never forget that it is those who persist that get the rewards in life. Nobody is going to make your dream happen for you.
