Entrepreneurship: America’s Greatest Freedom for Individual Prosperity

Prosperity through Entrepreneurship is primarily fueled by our constitutional right to own property, own businesses, generate income from that property and keep the earnings!

A recent study by The World Bank, “On the Relevance of Freedom and Entitlement in Development” points out that after reviewing the performance of more than 100 countries over the past 30 years, “new empirical evidence supporting the idea that economic freedom and civil and political liberties are the root causes of why some countries achieve and sustain better economic outcomes.” It further asserts that “the expansion of the state to provide for various entitlements, including so-called economic, social and cultural rights, may not make people richer in the long run and may even make them poorer.”

Many times we attempt to rectify the societal inequities with government programs and entitlements, when in reality the freedom to innovate, own and prosper on our own, is the best path to prosperity and heart of the American Dream.

The word entrepreneur comes from the French word entreprender, meaning “to take action”. The most common use of it would translate in the English language to “general contractor”. They must know how to connect past experience and knowledge to a new idea and bring it to fruition. The tenacity of challenging the status quo with probing questions, exploring of nuances, toying with surprises, creates an incubator for innovation and creativity.

Given the personal property rights embedded in the constitution of the United States, and supplemented by the democratization of information through technology, Entrepreneurship remains accessible to all Americans and remains one of the best pathways to prosperity regardless of social or economic standing.

LEILA ™ AWARDS CEREMONY As the Inland Empire business community turns a new leaf in 2023, Latina-Owned businesses appear as resolute and valuable as a gold-spreading radiance that lights the path for future women entrepreneurs. The inspiration for this year’s LEILA Awards is taken from what is the most valuable and reliable; a ‘Gold Standard.’ Latina-owned businesses in the Inland Empire exemplify the qualities of pure gold recognized for their remarkable adaptability, strength, and relentless spirit and are formed through a transformation that requires ingenuity, grit, and a winning mindset. During the event, we’ll examine the findings of the most recent NLBWA-IE research study in partnership with UCR. This analysis focuses on the digital divide’s disproportionate impact on Latina-owned businesses, particularly the lack of access to media literacy in the Inland Empire region. The Latinas nominated are entrepreneurs that have demonstrated leadership and service to their community. We are thrilled to recognize these brilliant women in 3 categories: LATINA EXECUTIVE OF THE YEAR AWARD, LATINA OWNED EMERGING BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD, and LATINA OWNED BUSINESS OF THE YEAR AWARD.
