Here’s what you can expect to learn about:
- The professional aspirations of working Americans
- The main hopes and fears when starting a business
- The influence of COVID-19 on entrepreneurship
- The importance of digitization in self-employment
Although jobs have somewhat returned to being stable and permanent since the COVID-19 pandemic has eased in severity, it’s still had a negative impact on job satisfaction. Such dissatisfaction has led the American people to consider other means of income, which has created a self employment and entrepreneurship movement.
With 80% of the participants in the study stating that they have dreams of starting their own business, entrepreneurship seems to have a bright future ahead of it. In fact, a large number of the participants felt that being self-employed would make their working lives much happier, particularly the mothers of the group.
So, with entrepreneurship supposedly being the key to happiness, what is preventing American men and women from starting their dream businesses? For most participants, a lack of financial reserves was the biggest obstacle.
