Are Entrepreneurs Adding Jobs in Your Town?

Entrepreneurs are an optimistic bunch.

A recent study by the Kauffman Foundation reveals that about 3 million jobs are created annually by start-up businesses. They might be part-time and they might not be located in a fancy building, but nevertheless, these jobs count.

I’ve heard some say that more businesses begin during a recession when people lose their jobs. Yet research shows the self employment rate is fairly steady through economic ups and downs.

According to the Center for Rural Entrepreneurship, the rate of growth for entrepreneurship has been slightly higher in rural areas than urban areas. Who’s adding workers where you live?
