Wichita is a place that exudes a hard working mindset. We work hard. Our employers, clients, and families know they can depend on us. Without dedicated local employees, Wichita Kansas small businesses and entrepreneurs, Our city would not be as successful as it is. Fortunately this place provides many advantages for small business. Two of the top- an excellent workforce and low cost of operation.

A mindset common to many entrepreneurs is that we aren’t satisfied and we aren’t willing to settle.

As a small business owner, I understand that my income is not guaranteed. It is volatile . It is also not limited in the same way most salaried or hourly positions are. My income is dictated by the opportunity that I capitalize on,  relationships I build with my clients, my company’s performance, The money I invest, and the hours that I am willing to work.

Although I would never give up being an entrepreneur, I love this city and I also appreciate the comfort and security that Wichita provides for thousands of families through employers like Spirit Aerosystems, McConnell Air Force Base, and even USD 259.

This post is supposed to be a tribute to local small businesses, but we could not do what we do without the consistent, dependable, hard work of Wichita employees and their management. We are fortunate to be in a market where employees take pride in their work and consistently show it.
