The Founding Fathers Were Entrepreneurs
Following up on yesterday's post, it is appropriate to point you to a post by Bill Murphy, Jr. documenting that most of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were entrepreneurs. By this Murphy means they were in business for themselves. They undertook production of various sorts with their own property, bearing the risk of failure. Murphy draws upon Charles Goodrich's, Lives of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence, originally published in 1829.
