Today: Entrepreneurs Are Open for Business even if the Government Isn’t

October 2, 2013

Business advice for small businesses and women entrepreneurs


Periodically a situtation presents itself that confirms to an entrepreneur why their company exists. The situtation might arise when a client sends an unexpected testimonial to the business owner or when a product significantly improves the life of the consumer. At times, a national crisis can remind a business owner how their enterprise assist the marketplace. As the United States settled into its first government shutdown in 17 years two days ago, I was reminded why I became an entrepreneur.

Many people become business owners for the flexibility it offers, the unlimited income potential it possesses, and the freedom it brings to one’s career. A majority of people who start companies enjoy these benefits but also want to make a significant difference in the lives of the people they serve. I was reminded of that today as Good Morning America showed World War II veterans trying to visit their national monument in Washington but couldn’t get in, high school students stuck in a national park on a learning expedition and economic agencies that support small business unable to provide programming until funds are available again. Most services are at a halt, slowing down or closing up until the gridlock ceases in Washington.

But women entrepreneurs aren’t slowing down today or closing up shop and you know why? It’s because we have created entities that exist purely on our own will, determination and decisions. We aren’t controlled or told what to do by anyone. We wake up every morning with a clean slate and the ability to pick and choose what we want to work on, how long we want to work and who we want to assist. We have the control and especially on days like today, we can continue to work, earn a living and do business as usual while the government creates a standstill around us.

Today’s blog post is to help you realize we have the power to do anything we want to do today. Nobody can stop you. Nobody will tell you where you can go and what you can experience. You have unlimited resources, vision and energy to make today a very productive day. As the government shuts down, realize it may have a small affect on our lives but a more minimal effect on our entrepreneurial passion, responsibilities and outcome.

I hope you also realize that my company Women TIES represents, markets and promotes women all over New York State that are open for business as usual who are eager to do business with you. All you need to do is visit our website to find them. I’m glad I created this company 8 years ago so I can keep the economic lines open between women business owners even when the government is closing theirs.

    I agree! Not being dependent on outside forces that can derail us is a great way to be. However, I do feel for those that in some way have to rely on others for specific aspects of their businesses. When the whims of the others can negatively impact you, that is a difficult position to be in.
