Welcome to this week’s small business news roundup!

First, the announcement of the newly created BusinessUSA.gov, “a centralized, one-stop platform to make it easier than ever for businesses to access services to help them grow and hire.”

Also, a quick reminder that next Saturday, November 24 is Small Business Saturday, “a day dedicated to supporting small businesses nationwide.” It is sandwiched between Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so be sure to show your support for small businesses!

In this week’s roundup, we’ll discuss how to franchise your small business, how to write a catchy slogan, retirement options for small biz owners, and tips for small business bloggers.

Now, some other great roundups:

  • This Week in Small Business: Now What?: The New York Times links to articles on what President Obama’s re-election means for small businesses, how your business can help victims of Hurricane Sandy, advice on when it’s time to fire your accountant, and much more.
  • 3 Things You Should Know About Small Business: Nov. 14: From The Street, links to articles on Papa John’s reaction to President Obama’s re-election, Intuit’s expansion of the ‘Love Our Local Business’ initiative, and a hardware store owner’s apology for urging employees to vote for Mitt Romney.
