The Entrepreneur’s Source: What Do Hot Dogs and Entrepreneurship Have in Common?
We’re two-thirds of the way through the BIG Three Summer Holiday season. Labor Day is all that’s left with Memorial Day and Independence Day in the rear-view mirror (how is it late-July already?!?!). But there’s another holiday we at The Entrepreneur’s Source® believe is well worth mentioning: National Hot Dog Day on July 23rd (or the 19th, depending on the source. It’s not every day you can celebrate a holiday twice in the same month!).
It’s all part of July’s National Hot Dog Month – one of the most American things imaginable. As Americans, we spend billions on packs and packs of the spiced mixture of meats, then add any number of different condiments and toppings, depending on where you live in the country.
But, the hot dog has another claim to fame: helping grow the entrepreneurial spirit in America. People seeking to better themselves built push-carts to sell hot dogs on street corners in lower Manhattan in the 19th century. Dissatisfied with their lot in life, they saw a need, filled a niche, and became their own boss. Today, there are 3,000 food carts in the city, including those selling hot dogs, with countless thousands more across the U.S., some still independently owned.
What about you? Haven’t you ever dreamed of carving out your own “corner” and becoming your own boss? At The Entrepreneur’s Source®, the nation’s number one resource for exploring alternative career options in franchising, we believe the only thing more ‘Merican than a good ol’ hot dog is the entrepreneurial spirit that is alive and well in our beloved country. We believe the time is NOW for people to start taking control of their professional lives, to achieve the Income, Lifestyle, Wealth, and Equity they and their family deserve, and we have the tools and resources to help.
“I know there are thousands of American workers totally dissatisfied with their job for professional and personal reasons,” says Terry Powell, visionary CEO and Founder of The Entrepreneur’s Source®. “That’s why we wrote the book, ‘Your Career 2.0: A Survival Guide for the Battered Career and Investor Syndrome’ and have partnered with hundreds of franchise coaches nationwide who can help aspiring business owners chase their entrepreneurial dreams.
“Too many of those workers believe if they can just hang on, things will get better. We explain why that’s a fallacy in Your Career 2.0 and in private conversations every single day. There’s too much out of your control as an employee, such as corporate buy-outs and downsizing, which just destroy that kind of wishful thinking. The ‘golden watch and corner office’ days are over. The future belongs to those who take control of their future as business owners.
At The Entrepreneur’s Source®, we have the proven tools, strategies, and personal, one on one coaching, to help anyone find the right franchise fit for their skills, talent and personality, to provide them with more satisfaction and control over their professional life.”
The Entrepreneur’s Source® has already helped many of those callously cut adrift by the corporate world find a more rewarding reality in becoming self-sufficient. Other disenchanted workers have chosen not to wait for the inevitable, but rather seized the reins of a new challenge, choosing empowerment over employment.
The Entrepreneur’s Source® is committed to helping countless Americans tap into their entrepreneurial spirit– working with them to create modern-day American small business success stories as inspirational as those 19th century hot-dog push carts.
So, let’s celebrate the red, white and blue this July with hot dogs and entrepreneurship.
