Two weeks ago I headed to the White House to be honored as one of the Top 100 Entrepreneurs under the age of 30 as listed on the Empact 100 list. The visit to Washington DC was jammed packed but full of really great news for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
While at the US Capitol I heard from those that are pushing congress to support entrepreneurs. There were many promising ideas, from knocking down student loans for those starting a business of their own, to allowing “starting a business” to be equal to “searching for work” for those on unemployment.
While at the White House, I along with 12 others, pledged to do our part in supporting others as they follow the path to owning their own business. As you know, that is what I do every day here at LKR. My team and myself are driven by helping people take that leap to owning their own business and helping the economy one entrepreneur at a time.
Want to hear my pledge? Check out this video from my time at the White House last week.
Here’s a link to the organization I mention in my pledge, http://www.cofed.org. They are a wonderful organization “committed to empowering students to create ethically-sourced, cooperatively-run food enterprises on college campuses.” Check them out and show them your support!
Cheers to small businesses everywhere!
