If you go back over 500 years, then you’ll realize that virtually everybody was running a “small business” of some form or another.Farmers, for example, were running a small business selling grain to merchants in the cities. Merchants were running a small business buying grains from farmers and flipping it for a profit at markets. Market owners were running a business by renting out stalls to merchants. The list goes on.Put simply, the vast majority of people in Roman times, the Middle Ages, and the Medieval Period were in business for themselves. Today, approximately 50% of U.S. GDP is generated by small businesses across the country. Lets support our local businesses whenever we can…..we love to swing by Stonefruit Espresso in Bed-Stuy for some treats.
