a salute to

small business

In the United States, small business employs over half of the country's workforce. While many people think that new industrial giants are the most important factor in driving the economy, but small business is actually the top dog. Without small businesses, where would half of the country work? Small business in America has been the stabilizing force in the economy. Entrepreneurs are the backbone of creativity and production. Small business is what stimulates economic growth. With over 60% of all private sectors, non-farm jobs coming from small business, it is a proven fact that small businesses are critical to the United States economy. Those businesses represented in this publication are examples of thriving small business operations in our community. Support them… they are the keys to the over all health of our economic fabric. The Small Business Administration (SBA) has announced the top 10 reasons to love small business, what the SBA's Office of Advocacy calls “the heart of the American economy.”

10. Small businesses make up more than 99.7% of all employers. 9. Small businesses create more than 50% of the nonfarm private gross domestic product (GDP). 8. Small patenting firms produce 13 to 14 times more patents per employee than large patenting firms. 7. The 22.9 million small businesses in the United States are located in virtually every neighborhood. 6. Small businesses employ about 50% of all private sector workers. 5. Home-based businesses account for 53% of all small businesses. 4. Small businesses make up 97% of exporters and produce 29% of all export value. 3. Small businesses with employees start-up at a rate of over 500,000 per year. 2. Four years after start-up, half of all small businesses with employees remain open. 1. The latest figures show that small businesses create 75% of the net new jobs in our economy. Source: U.S. Small Business Administration

RESERVE GRAND CHAMPION AT THE 2012 IOWA STATE FAIR FOR DRIED BEEF


Introducing the timeless new Red, White & Blue flag, honoring all US veterans from every war and time period, both living and deceased. How this flag came to be: An elderly woman came into our store requesting a flag that would honor veterans from all US war's through out our history, and that would have all six branches of military's on it. She said she had lost a son to the Vietnam war, a grandson to the Afghanistan war and one grandson still serving. She stated that she was very proud that they had served and fought for our freedom, defending our way of life. She was flying the POW flag and felt it was more for the Vietnam era and wanted to honor her grandson's as well. This flag is the result of her search.

About the flag: This Nylon (Thank You) Veterans Flag is made in the USA.

This flag has a profound meaning: The blue field represents all veterans as a whole, the living are still solid. The stars in the background in the blue field represents the heroic fallen soldiers who have given there lives defending our nation. Even though they are gone from this world they are not forgotten, and when the sun shines from behind the flag the stars are brought into full view. The white represents the purity and innocence of the men, women and children they defend. The oval shape in which all 6 military's are positioned, represents that no one is first nor last. It takes all of our military's to defend our nation. The red tattered end represents the blood our troops have so selflessly shed in defending our great nation while maintaining our freedom and way of life.

This flag can be purchased Retail or Wholesale at: 19278 Conifer Lane Council Bluffs, Iowa 51503
