You have a small business, spring is in the air and you are ready to enjoy the weather as well as the possibilities. So what are you to do? Well there are many things you can do and May is the month to do it.
It came across my desk that May is National Small Business Month and May 16-20 is designated as National Small Business Week. This week has been designated since 1963 because of the major contributions that small businesses bring to the economy’s well-being of America. This year the National Small Business Week will honor the estimated 27.2 million small businesses in America. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business. They also create 60-80 percent of new jobs in the country. Small businesses drive innovation, create 21st century jobs and increase U.S. competitiveness.
During the Month of May in honor of National Small Business Month, I will share written and audio information every day of the month and if you sign up for my newsletter, you will receive the daily information to move your business further along or enhance operations, reach, or begin your Big Idea.
