no comments yet


This week’s small business news is all about looking forward, including stories on the new definition of “small business” by the SBA, how you can get credit and cut energy costs, what you need to know about Windows Phone 7, and what one author says will continue to motivate small business owners in the future.

  • SBA Revises Definition of Small Business: Inc. reports that “some 17,000 more businesses [will be] eligible for [Small Business Association] loans, preferential treatment for federal contracts and other programs” because of recent increases in size standards of those eligible for SBA help.
  • How One Small Business Cut Energy Use and Costs: Using less energy and saving money are two things that are great for any business; this Reuters article recounts the efforts of a design firm owner in southern California, which included changing copiers and opting for more energy efficient air conditioning units.
  • Sharing Is the Future of Small Business, Author Says: Business News Daily shares this interview with author and tech entrepreneur Lisa Gansky, who believes that the American dream has morphed from a desire to acquire possessions to the desire to share them. What do you think?

As always, please share any stories you think fellow small business owners would appreciate by contacting us via the blog, Facebook, or Twitter.
