Amish Entrepreneurs

“Amish values of hard work, humility, loyalty, and community make for surprisingly—or maybe not-so-surprisingly—successful entrepreneurs.”

“Like many entrepreneurs, the Amish look at entrepreneurial success in ways that go well beyond financial success. Owning a business allows the Amish to have more time with family, as most of the businesses employ family members. Time with family is at the core of their culture, so using business ownership as a tool to maximize that time is paramount. Success is also tied to legacy. Amish entrepreneurs hope to be able to pass down their businesses to the next generation. The ability to give back to their community through mentorships, supporting missions, and financial contribution to those in need is also at the core of how they view success.”
