Honor The Fallen Entrepreneur

CHICAGO, Ill. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – After you’ve honored America’s heroes this Veteran’s Day (Nov. 11), there’s a group of bold businessmen and women that deserve respect – and a job!

The Entrex Private Company Index (PCI) is an organization that charts the performance of roughly 500 private companies making an annual revenue between five and 100 million dollars, and while $100 million may get your financial fire going, PCI director Erika Conefry says starting your own successful business won’t necessarily leave you rolling in dough.

She says, “It’s a well-published concept that a good number of entrepreneurs are on their second or third company. If one company closes, an entrepreneur would rather start another company than go work for someone else.”

And while fighting on the business front certainly doesn’t compare to defending your country, there are still risks involved.

Conefry says, “The entrepreneur community would say having their own business is the ultimate control – that’s what they love about it. But people who don’t have a sensibility in that direction would probably view it as risky. It’s a perspective issue.”
