Real small businesses are the backbone of the economy: 93% of businesses in the United States are MICRObusinesses. As big businesses have gotten bigger, midsize businesses started calling themselves "small", and here we are. Today's definition of small business can mean a company with up to 1,000 employees and $500 million in revenue! Meanwhile the rest of us in the real world of small business try to compete on an unequal field, listening to advice that isn't relevant, worrying about things that we can't control because we don't have lobbyists.
So, tune in and let's tackle the real world challenges faced by real world microbusiness owners.
