This week’s small business news roundup discusses tax tips, hiring trends, adjusting to changes in the patent system, and the growing importance of Pinterest. Let’s go!

First two other great roundups:

  • This Week in Small Business: Jobs!: The New York Times shares links to articles on job growth, news on mobile-payment companies, several links to the increasing presence of Pinterest on the small business scene, and much more.
  • 3 Things You Should Know About Small Business: Feb. 8: The Street talks about the House attempting to reverse President Obama’s rejection of the Keystone XL oil sands pipeline, figuring out your weaknesses in business so you can better compensate for them, and the Kauffman Foundation’s State of Entrepreneurship Address.

And now the rest:

  • Business Owners Adjusting to Overhaul of Patent System: From The New York Times: “The most sweeping patent system changes in more than 50 years became law in September with enactment of the America Invents Act, which the White House has said will help turn inventions into businesses faster. Entrepreneurs and small-business owners who rely on the patent system to protect their intellectual property are just starting to understand the changes, which phase in over an 18-month period that ends in March 2013.”
