    There Are Many Opportunities for Start-Up Small Business

    Amazon Announces Opportunities for Small Business Owners

    Small businesses in America continue to drive innovation and provide opportunities for people to enter the world of entrepreneurship. A recent example has been presented by one of the biggest giants of the commercial world. Amazon recently announced opportunities for small business owners to assist with its growing demand for small package delivery services nationwide. A recent article in the New York Times (see announced opportunities) touted Amazon’s new initiative, stating:

    The company announced Thursday a new program aimed at helping people start their own businesses delivering packages for Amazon. For a minimum investment of $10,000, people in the United States will be able to open and manage their own delivery service handling Amazon packages. Although the couriers will not be employees of the company, they’ll get access to Amazon-branded vehicles, uniforms and more. By the company’s calculations, an owner could earn as much as $300,000 a year in profit by operating a fleet of up to 40 vehicles.
