Suze Orman says the answer to fixing America as a financial and business system is… for people to become entrepreneurial!
On Sunday, CNN aired an important conversation between Piers Morgan and Suze Orman, and I was thrilled to hear Suze’s support of entrepreneurs! Here’s part of the transcript:
Piers Morgan: What is the answer to the broken problem of the moment of America incorporated? The country as a business?
Suze Orman: … I think the answer is people are going to have to become entrepreneurial… they are going to have to become their own bosses. The day of working for a corporation, you get a pension after 30 years and health benefits, gone. So, if you really want to be secure, you are going to have to be your own boss.
Piers Morgan: It’s fine for you because you are a very bright cookie. You started as a waitress in a restaurant and built this incredible empire. But most average Americans aren’t natural entrepreneurs.
And I don’t think I can agree with that. I think that America does needs to build things. For example, I’m told there’s a huge demand in China for big, heavy machinery and they would buy it from the Americans if the Americans were producing it in the volume that they need it. But they are not. The old style industrialization in America isn’t happening anymore.
Suze Orman: And I think it’s a nice idea. I just don’t think that’s what’s going to happen. I think we’re — we have entered a new period with new technology and things that have never been developed before. That, I think we can do here.
But I still think we have a big problem with how do you get the people back now to work? We can’t wait until all that happens. They need to go back to work now to work. And since the jobs aren’t here, they have to create a job for themselves.
I couldn’t agree more, Suze! And Piers? I think there are many more “natural entrepreneurs” out there than we realize — they just need reason (and courage) to actually start that business!
As entrepreneurs, we have the flexibility and the power to move quickly, to make changes and create jobs with a fraction of the time and expense that large corporations require.
We can have significant impact on this country’s financial recovery, so let’s make our businesses the best they can possibly be and do our part to help this country thrive!
