Small-business owners have a family history of hard work and passion. While family businesses don’t always get the recognition that they deserve, this national holiday in March marks a time when small businesses are honored for their contribution to the American marketplace.

"National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day" which falls on March 29, was established by Rick Segel, author of Retail Business Kit for Dummies and other business books. He started the holiday to honor his parents, who opened their own small business in 1939. While their business, a hat shop called Ruth’s, closed in 1997, the spirit of celebrating "mom and pop" businesses has lived on ever since.

"Small businesses, especially 'mom and pop' businesses, are key to this country’s economic success, and we hope this special offer helps entrepreneurs get their business started and established businesses reap the benefits of incorporating," says Karen Kobelski, general manager of BizFilings. "Incorporation of your business can limit liability for business owners and protect family assets. Incorporated businesses also benefit from perpetual existence, meaning the company can virtually survive forever."
