Last week I heard our President say that I, as a small business owner, did not "do it, other people did it".  I was shocked, amazed – what a slap in the face.  I have sacrificed time with my family, personal savings and more to launch and sustain my business, as did million of other business owners.  I spent the week researching "who invented the Internet", how much money has been "given" to private businesses, and the breakdown of government spending (directy payments, contracts, grants, insurance and other payments).  I was trying to find the best approach for this topic for today's show.  I decided to sit down and write a letter to President Obama which I read on air today.  So please forgive me for not posting my weekly "fraud elert" and thank you for allowing me to vent.  I also want to hear from you – what did you think of President Obama's statement?  If you are a small business owner I want to hear about how you started your company and what "help" and who were the "others" that built your company.  Leave your comments below – no spam please!!!
