Welcome to this week’s small business news roundup! This week we’ll discuss what you should know about private equity, biz owners struggling with time management issues, whether all entrepreneurs should learn how to code, how to save money on marketing, and how to promote a customer loyalty program.

First another great roundup:

  • This Week in Small Business: The Van Indicator: The New York Times links to articles on Starbucks’ investment in mobile payment provider Square, five things small biz owners should know about Google Wallet, when you should consider changing your business’ name, a successful  Dunkin’ Donuts text-messaging promotion, and much more.

And now, the rest!

  • Business Owners Struggle with Time Management Issues: According to, a recent infographic from MavenLink shows that “one in four business owners believe that just one more hour in the workday would be worth $500 — and that may be a deal considering that 76 percent of business owners report filling an average of 3-6 roles in their organizations on any given day.”
  • Should every entrpreneur learn how to code?: The Washington Post discusses this issue with members of the Young Entrepreneurs Council (YEC), “an invite-only nonprofit organization comprised of young entrepreneurs.”
