What did you think of President Obama’s comments about helping small business in his State of the Union Address? Lara Feltin, co-founder of entrepreneurial site Biznik said he was talking about small business, not micro business (a business of one) and she is skeptical that money will get into the hands of those of us with businesses under ten employees. Her comments are thought-provoking.
This leads me to talk about small business owners (personal businesses of one, and other small businesses) to not wait for others to wave a flag to continue. We must find role models and innovators who are solving their revenue and growth issues through ideas like collaboration or a creative twist on an old strategy. This could be you and your business.
