The following link is a GREAT video on the importance of entrepreneurs. Granted this was given to a room of people involved in the MLM, Strongbrook, but it is applicable to ALL Americans. Everyone needs to hear this. Just ignore any reference made to Strongbrook (they are minimal).
After watching it ask yourself, "What is my passion" and "How can I use my passion to bless the lives of others." Then, think about how you can turn this into a business.
I also highly recommended that you read the book "Conscious Creator" by Kris Krohn.
We can change America one entrepreneur at a time!
