National Entrepreneurs' Day Petition

Can you imagine a World without entrepreneurs? David Hauser and Siamak Taghaddos can’t, and that’s why they started the National Entrepreneurs’ Day Petition. This petition will hopefully make its way to President Obama when it has garnered enough support. Entrepreneurs make the World go ’round – they are the people who help our countries, people and way of life continue to evolve by bringing new and innovative ideas and products to the table.

The petition is a call to action, asking the President to officially name March 20th, 2011 as National Entrepreneurs’ Day in the United States. As stated in the document, “It’s not just another day on the calendar. It’s an opportunity to recognize America’s rich history of entrepreneurship and make sure there’s a strong foundation for its future.”

It will only take a few seconds of your time to add your name to the list of supporters by signing with your Twitter handle. You can then shoot a tweet to your followers, asking them to sign their John Hancock, as well. There are already many notable supporters, including the founders of Rackspace, WordPress and Mixergy.

Even if you aren’t an entrepreneur yourself, you likely know someone who is. Keep in mind that an entrepreneur is someone who “has possession of a new enterprise, venture or idea and assumes significant accountability for the inherent risks and the outcome.” If you have an idea for a much-needed service, you don’t have to have a ton of money to get started. There are many resources out there which can help connect you with the people and places who can make your dreams come true.
