Small businesses are the largest employers in the United States with 52% of all workers who hold jobs work for small businesses. The Small Business Administration reports that “19.6 million Americans work for companies employing fewer than 20 workers, 18.4 million work for firms employing between 20 and 99 workers, and 14.6 million work for firms with 100 to 499 workers. By contrast, 47.7 million Americans work for firms with 500 or more employees.”
The computer industry in particular has a history of producing inventors of digital products while working in the comfort of their homes or garages, merely tinkering around with tools, devices, and machinery. The most well-known companies which grew from small businesses to major corporations include Microsoft, Ben & Jerry’s, FedEx, and Nike. While there are 23 million small businesses in the United States, only one in four is actually interested in expanding their business.
The economy has been struggling for the last five years as a result of the economic crisis of 2008 which resulted in massive job losses due to business failures, the Ponzi scheme, and the collapse of the banking and real estate industries. College graduates have not been able to secure entry level jobs which could enable them to begin careers for which they prepared for while attending college.
Fortunately, there have been a few promising opportunities as a result of a few innovative individuals who have created new products to service the small businesses as well as provide new jobs. One of the people is Darnell Smith of Metro City Billboards in Dallas, Texas, who developed digitized display billboards where businesses can display their ads, videos, and music relative to their businesses. These digital billboards were created to be displayed at local small businesses and can hold as many as four different ads from local small businesses. Customers can view the ads while shopping or being serviced at the businesses.
Darnell has also created job opportunities for anyone who might be interested in finding sponsors for the bill boards and selling ads. He is currently expanding the business throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area, and has indicated that he can control the billboards which can be placed anywhere in the world.
