Why Micro-Entrepreneurship Could Be Key to Job Creation

The labor force’s prospects seem pretty grim, with the latest jobs report showing dismal job growth and an unemployment rate of 8.2 percent — three years after the recession officially ended. We’re at a point where people are starting to rethink and redefine what work means to them, and the typical 9-to-5 job that you work at for 40 hours a week and retire from after 30 years is an old way of thinking. This concept of micro-entrepreneurship is to get people the tools and resources to be their own bosses, and decide how much they want to work, how much they want to get paid and what skills they want to share.
