We postd on Mine Your Own Business last week in Small Business Saturday Follow-Up about the movement to empasize sales at small businesses on the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This would be similar to the already well established Black Friday for large retailers and Cyber Monday for online sales. In the article we referenced in the posting there was a comment on how there was also a movement to make November 19th National Entrepreneurs's Day and that we hoped it would become a reality.
Well we got our wish. President Obama has proclaimed this week National Entrepreneurship Week and Friday National Entrepreneurs' Day. President has a lot of good things to say about entrepreneurs and how important they are to the American economy. You can read all about it at this article from AOL Small Business.
