VetJobs (the nation’s largest military job board at http://vetjobs.com ) reported only 160,000 new jobs were created in May (June 2016 Veteran Employment Situation Report) (BOL). However a minimum of 250,000 new jobs per month needs to be created to have any real growth .
“Historically, most job growth comes from small businesses, but current government regulations and policies make it difficult for small businesses to grow. As reported extensively in the news, the United States is again having more companies close up than started. This is a phenomenon of the last year.” http://vetjobs.com/category/veteran-employment-situation-report/
Certainly there exist a myriad of offered up reasons as to why job growth has and remains stalled to include overly burdensome government regulations and policies.
“Only about half of all new establishments survive five years or more – only one-third survive 10 years or more ‘. (US SBA Off. Of Advocacy; see also, http://www.sbecouncil.org/about-us/facts-and-data); As cited by SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet (scheduled speaker at the National Veteran Small Business Engagement, Pittsburgh, Nov.17-19, 2015), “…access to capital is the number one issue facing all small business.”
Simply put there exist direct relationships between small business successes and the creation of quality full time employment opportunities. Small business remains the driving engine for the American economy, providing roughly three-quarters of all new jobs.
The starting point for meaningful change in quality job growth should perhaps be a first look inward – the small business owner and entrepreneur?
In the “real world” of business, it is neither new revenue additions nor support financing (all necessary ingredients for sure) that will create enterprise success. Rather, either the owner has in place, develops, and/or acquires the necessary knowledge for best business practices and financial acumen, adverse consequences will inevitably follow.
“Having the requisite knowledge to properly run an enterprise, is much like photography. If you don’t have it and correctly focused all you’ll ever get is a negative.”
Without that knowledge or acumen in place, all the business development on the planet, even accompany financing, will not evade the eventual problems, costly detours, potholes, and possible discontinuance.
The 2015 studies and statistical data overwhelmingly and in glaring fashion confirm those simple facts. See, http://www.ultimatefinancingguide.com/articles-directly-confronting-our-economys-dismal-outcomes-with-recommended-guidelines-for-analyses-and-remedies-to-correct-an-ongoing-series/
“A business owner doesn’t have to turn out the lights to be in the dark!”
It really is about wholesale failures to “know what one does not know” and even worse, ignoring/refusing to aggressively seek the knowledge to prevent and remedy those deficiencies . . . [T]here is only one pathway to stop the negative outcomes. Requisite knowledge and financial acumen must be acquired. See, Shunning the Drivers for Adverse Results – It All Starts with the Business Owner,
The more and better knowledge empowered all business owners/ entrepreneurs, the more successful their enterprises. The more and better knowledge equipped the business owner the more quality veteran job growth becomes stimulated – it’s really that simple.
Either the owner has in place, develops, and/or acquires the necessary knowledge for best business practices and financial acumen, adverse consequences will inevitably follow.
