According to the overall U.S. listing, 28,443,856 small businesses are currently operating in the United States, and those businesses employ a total of 56,062,893 workers total. However, only 5,707,941 small businesses actually have employees; the remaining 22,735,915 are single-owner ventures without additional workers. The largest segment of small businesses includes firms with less than 100 employees—which includes the single-ownership group. These businesses make up a huge percentage of the employment options in the U.S.—nearly 99 percent nationally.
How important are small businesses to the US economy?Small businesses have consistently played a major role in economic growth because they create so many jobs—many more than large businesses. In the first three fiscal quarters of 2014, reports the SBA, small businesses added 1.4 million new jobs, 39% of which were from very small businesses (with fewer than 50 people).
As you can imagine, small business was key for the nation’s recovery from the recession. Between the middle of 2009 and the middle of 2013, 60% of the jobs created were from small businesses.
What’s the most frequent reason for small business failure?
According to a U.S. Bank study, a whopping 82% of businesses that fail do so because of cash flow problems. Remember that cash flow doesn’t just mean the amounts of money that are coming in and out: you have to take timing into account, too. If you operate a business based on an invoicing system, for example, and your invoices aren’t paid until after your loan payments are due, you might end up with a cash flow problem.DIGITAL WORLD PRIDES ITSELF ON BEING A SOURCE OF SUPPORT AND ASSISTANCE FOR SMALL BUSINESSES -- ON HELPING SECURE CASHFLOW AND MINIMIZE EXPENSE WASTE!
