I have been an entrepreneur since 1995. It is a big part of who I am. Like many among 20 million American entrepreneurs, running my own company gives me a natural high that I can never get working for someone else. I have built 3 successful businesses since I was 23. Two of the three ventures cater to fellow entrepreneurs and businesses. I love supporting my own community, so you can imagine my surprise when I found out that the United States did not have an official day for Entrepreneurs– until recently.

In May, 2009, Grasshopper Group, a virtual phone system business, created an inspirational video meant to remind aspiring and existing entrepreneurs about the virtues of dreaming big and thinking that anything is possible with hard work, ambition and tenacity. In May, 2010, they decided to start a petition in partnership with the Kauffman Foundation to have a National Entrepreneurs’ Day. Six months later, President Barack Obama declared┬áNovember 19 National Entrepreneurs’ Day.

Check out this inspirational video that played a big role during the campaign. An oldie but goodie.

Thanks for sharing our video Carol!

Thanks for such a great video idea and message! It really says something about who you are as a company. The marketing is just so sophisticated. I love it!

It’s also really inspiring for video producers like me who want to make a difference in the entrepreneurial community. Thank you!
