It's that time of year again! After finishing the Thanksgiving feasts and braving the Black Friday crowds, many Americans look forward to the annual Small Business Saturday. This year, November 28th marks the day where we all "shop small." Last year, nearly one in four Americans participated in Small Business Saturday and many say that it is a great opportunity to not only find unique gifts, but also form a connection with the local business community.
The US economy is undergoing a major transformation, and has been for some time. Gone are the days of labor unions and heavy manufacturing. We are now entering an era in which the service economy reigns. This has important implications on the health of our economy, the way we think about products and services, and how your business may evolve in the future. | Bankmybiz.com |
