There is good news for the ‘Be your own boss’ entrepreneurs as the following selected quotes from Professor Scott Shane (Scott Shane is the A. Malachi Mixon III professor of entrepreneurial studies at Case Western Reserve University. His books include Illusions of Entrepreneurship) indicates:-“Hidden in much of the gloomy news about small business in recent years is an important positive statistic: business failure rates are in a long-term decline. The rate at which American employers go under has fallen by 30 percent since 1977”. “Part of the decline in the business failure rates stems from a change in where small businesses operate. As the industry mix of small companies has shifted away from sectors like construction, where failure rates are higher, to sectors like services, where closure rates are lower, the average rate of business survival has risen” One factor is the tendency for “entrepreneurs to evaluate business opportunities more carefully before taking the plunge”
