This week marks the 50th Anniversary of National Small Business Week.

Each year we devote one week to recognize the importance of small businesses and honor their successes. While it is admirable to devote a week to small businesses, what we have to remember is that every week is small business week.

Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and the engines of job creation- Over half of Americans own or are employed by a small business. There are 29.6 million small businesses in the United States that create seven out of every ten new American jobs each year.

Small businesses are the key to economic prosperity. The government does not create jobs, small businesses do.

The government and its law makers should do everything in their power to cultivate an ideal environment for small businesses to grow and prosper by removing roadblocks to growth and building economic certainty.

We need to keep the focus on the American worker and on small businesses. We need to remember that every week is small business week.
