Independence Day is our national holiday commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

For the enterprise value specialists at Ceibass, it is a day to celebrate the birth of our nation as an independent nation and a time to celebrate lawn & landscape business owners who have constituted their ambition to be financially independent. Political freedom first. Then financial freedom. 

“Without political freedom first, there can be no financial freedom. We need laws that protect contracts, corrupt-free courts, and a free people, first of all,” said Tom Fochtman, Ceibass CEO. “With that foundation, we then go about the business of building our financial freedom without fear of the government or others stealing our wealth and businesses. Independence Day, July 4, 1776 was the beginning.”

So what did happen on July 4, 1776? The Continental Congress approved the final wording of the Declaration of Independence that day. They’d been working on it for a couple of days after the draft was submitted on July 2nd and finally agreed on all of the edits and changes. 

July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the Declaration of Independence, and the fancy handwritten copy that was signed in August (the copy now displayed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.).

“So here’s to our forefathers, to their vision, to their courage to create a new nation,” said Tom. “And here’s to the lawn & landscape buslness owners who fight for their financial freedom everyday. They take great risks and give up their time and energy to build their enterprise with great employees and customers. They build their company with American values – they work hard, value the people on their team, they don’ break trust, they give back and make life better for their communities and the people around them. Everything our declaration of independence was meant to achieve.”

 Have a wonderful Independence Day Holiday.
