National Small Business Week being celebrated

Every year since 1963, the president of the United States issues a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week. Specifically, we offer a checklist for small business owners, covering everything from choosing a company name to payroll and taxation.

The survey asked owners about the strength of the dollar, the stock market and health care costs, "Healthcare and tax reform are big concerns of our small business owners across the country". "Championing small businesses, educating, and providing resources for the community to come together".

"We wanted to provide an opportunity for our small business owners to meet each other and to learn about how they can take their business to the next level", Jon Hartman, director of Planning and Economic Development for Elizabethton, said.

The small business sector in America occupies 30-50% of all commercial space, estimated between 20 to 34 billion square feet. City officials will also be visiting other local small businesses during the week to highlight their contributions to the local economy. "All of these services are free of charge, which are funded by SBA (Small Business Administration) and the Legislature".

"Small businesses make up 85 percent of businesses in the Tulsa region, and we create two out of three jobs", Dreiling said.

Their business grew through social media marketing and word of mouth.

The City of Boston's Technical Assistance program has recently expanded to include business coaches fluent in several different languages, including Spanish, French and Arabic, and with expertise in financial management, marketing and employee-owned businesses.

"This is a tremendous opportunity to energize our communities to focus on all of the wonderful local businesses", she adds.

Henry said it's customer service that has set his family's business apart and kept them going for 49 years. The Mayor says that he has "the utmost respect for these business owners and honors their tenacity". And that's the story McMahon is sharing with small business owners this week.

Garrett and Melanie Marrero received the award for Small Business Persons of the Year from the U.S. Small Business Administration a week after being selected as Hawaii's Small Business Persons of the year by the agency.
