Welcome to the first small business news weekly roundup of the new year!

In this week’s roundup, we’ll discuss the fiscal cliff, small biz trends for 2013, how to recharge your business this year, what a cash-poor entrepreneur should do when faced with giving up control of his or her company, and dressing for success as a small biz owner.

First, some other great roundups:

  • Small Business Must-Reads: Thursday, Jan. 3: From The Wall Street Journal, links to articles on how small biz owners are handling the fiscal cliff deal, a lending lull for small businesses at the end of 2012, a timeline of Zipcar’s growth, and more.

And now, the rest!

  • Cliff Fix Hits Small Business: The Wall Street Journal reports on the impact that the fiscal cliff deal will have on small biz owners across the country.
  • Should a Cash-Poor Entrepreneur Give Up Control to Keep Her Start-Up Alive?: From the New York Times, a case study about Eatwhatever, a breath mint company whose founder found herself running out of cash in late 2011 but then received an offer from an industry pro who wanted 75% of the company in return for his expertise. What’s a cash-poor entrepreneur to do? Interesting stuff.
