Going back to 1984, when our Visionary Founder, Terry Powell, launched The Entrepreneur’s Source, he had a core belief in the many benefits and advantages that self-sufficiency through small business ownership provide to Americans. Terry’s own coaching practice quickly revealed that approximately 75% of the adult population has a strong to very strong desire to be self-sufficient, but only about 5-7% ever acted to fulfill this most common “American dream”. This is one key reason that the National Small Business Week celebration each year is so important to our founder, to our coaches, to our clients and the thousands of people whom The Entrepreneur’s Source has already helped to become small business owners!
35 years later, The Entrepreneur’s Source is one of the country’s top career transition coaching networks, helping thousands of people each year discover business ownership as an alternative career. Today, we are proud of more than 130 coaches across North America; small business owners themselves, who take great pride in helping clients see beyond their blind spots, while holding them accountable to the Goals, Needs and Expectations they’ve set for themselves. Each year The Entrepreneur’s Source helps hundreds move from Employment to Empowerment – the empowerment that only comes from business ownership.
For more than 50 years, each successive President of the United States issues a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week to recognize the monumental contributions American entrepreneurs, franchisees and small business owners make. Over 50% of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they are collectively responsible for two-thirds of the jobs created annually.
