Successful National Small Business Week

May 23, 2011

There’s nothing quite like a presidential proclamation to make your small business stand a little taller. Last week after hailing small business owners as “the backbone of the nation’s economy,” President Obama's National Small Business Week was a proclaimed success.

Even if you could not be at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Washington last week for the officially sanctioned events, here are a few ways to continue occasion in your neck of the woods:

-  Schedule a party to celebrate your business’ next anniversary. Remember: to open a small business is easy, to keep it open is an art. Celebrate this success.

-  Drop a note of congratulations in the mail to your state’s Small Business Person of the Year. For us here at, that’s Barry Levin, owner of Snak King, from City of Industry, California. We salute you and your team, Barry.

-  Tap into the resources available at, including an online training network, Women’s business center, youth entrepreneurship section, and more.

-  Investigate the initiative launched by the Obama administration: Startup America. It can help you get a new idea off the ground or accelerate growth for your current company.

Lastly, remember, there’s more of us than of them. That's right — less than one-half of 1 percent of all businesses in the U.S. have more than 100 employees. So who’s really big?
