“Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.”
According to the Small Business Administration (SBA), “more 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.”
This week marks the end of the National Small Business Week, May 4th-8th, 2015. So, for many of our Ladybrille entrepreneurs, especially our women entrepreneurs, we thought we would celebrate by sharing some resources with you to help you start your business or take your existing business global:
