For many Americans, the idea of starting their own business has been a bit of a pipe dream--a risky idea that could only happen if all the stars aligned just right. The current economic disaster has changed all that, and entrepreneurship is now not only a good option, it's the only option for a lot of people.
Here are a few things you need to know about entrepreneurship in the new economy.

New businesses have been shouldering the load of job creation for decades...over 80% of new jobs come from companies that are five years old or younger. Starting your own business not only secures your own worklife and financial future, it also will make a positive impact on your local economy.
