Every November, we honor National Entrepreneurship Month and Women’s Entrepreneurship Day (November 19) by recognizing the great entrepreneurial spirit of those who believe in themselves to build something from the ground up. With ingenuity, grit and determination, entrepreneurs follow their passions, live life on their own terms and feel great pride in their ability to achieve their goals.
There are many benefits to running your own small business, including believing in what you do, spending more time doing the things that you want and job satisfaction. According to the American Express OPEN Small Business Monitor survey, most entrepreneurs are not only happy with their decision to be their own boss, but they are happy with life in general and feel secure about their future. More than 80 percent of entrepreneurs say their happiness is either partly or entirely tied to becoming an entrepreneur. When you are happy with the job that you are doing, you are more successful. A recent study from the Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom finds that happier workers made roughly 13 percent more in sales compared to when those same employees were unhappy.
The fear of failure can be daunting, but it doesn’t have to be a bad thing. It is how you handle your defeats that determines your success. Just think of where we would be if Thomas Edison gave up after his failures? Probably in the dark. He tested more than 3,000 designs on the practical and affordable light bulb and 6,000 materials for the filaments before finding the perfect match. His resilience to achieve his goals, even after multiple setbacks, led to some of the greatest inventions that have changed the world. You don’t have to be like Thomas Edison, but you could with the right attitude and determination. Entrepreneurs have a unique gift of staring adversity in the face and saying, “Nothing is standing in my way today.”
By next year, more than 40 million people in America will be participating in the “gig” economy, which consists of independent contractors, freelancers and project-based employees.

Most entrepreneurs own local small businesses, such as restaurants, dry cleaners and auto shops. When we invest our money locally we not only help a fellow neighbor, but we enrich the community as well. The opportunity to spend locally helps create jobs and provides tax revenue for infrastructure and city services. As a Neora Brand Partner you are your own business. The business you generate contributes to your own community, whether it is offering holistic, anti-aging skincare and wellness products or simply giving someone the opportunity to join your team. A rising tide raises all ships and when one business can thrive, so can many.
