Did you know that this past week was National Small Business Week? That’s right, every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing this special week that recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. As part of National Small Business Week, the U.S. Small Business Administration takes the opportunity to showcase the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories. Every day, they’re working to grow small businesses, create 21st century jobs, drive innovation and increase America’s global competitiveness.¹

We know a lot goes into being an owner of a small business and sometimes you don’t have all the answers. Didn’t spot our posts? It’s okay, here is a round-up of what we shared:

Are you looking for additional tips to help you become the best small business owner? This week, we chatted with ScanSnap Squad member and successful business owner, Linda Davis. During our conversation, she passed along the following things that she learned during her 23-year tenure as the owner of the RE/MAX Realty Group in Gales Ferry, Connecticut.

  • In 1986 Michael Gerber wrote, “The E-Myth: Why Most Businesses Don’t Work and What to Do About it”. In the book, he talked about creating “systems”. It changed the way I built my business and I always credit his book for my success. Although it is almost 30 years old, I still highly recommend it.
  • Embrace Technology. Technology tools, cloud computing and social media level the playing field and give a small business the opportunity to compete with the big boys. No expensive hardware or software is necessary.

Huge thanks goes out to all of you small business owners. We know it is not easy, but what you do is what truly makes a positive impact on your community and this country.
