Key Takeaways:

  • Eric feels the free enterprise economy can’t exist without entrepreneurs… they are the true heroes of the American economy
  • By having your business verified and listed on, it increases your search engine value
  • You can’t get too settled in a dynamic free enterprise economy



“There’s a general recognition that job creation and innovation, the real vitality of a free enterprise economy starts with the small companies… starts with people who go out and pursue an idea.” – Eric Shurenberg
