It is that time of year again, National Small Business Week. Starting in 1963 with President John F. Kennedy, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week. [http://www.sba.gov/nsbw/about] The week is supposed to recognize the important contributions of small business owners.
According to the U.S. Small Business Administration ("SBA"), "[m]ore than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year."
Events are planned across the nation to honor and help small businesses. The events are focused on providing workshops and mentorships for small business owners. Some of the events are available online through a live stream. Visit the SBA website for more information. [http://www.sba.gov/nsbw/events-schedule]
