Small Business Week Celebrating 50 Years

National Small Business WeekIn case you missed it, this week marks the 50th Anniversary of National Small Business Week   This week of national recognition of the "shop down the street" and the solopreneur was first declared by President John F. Kennedy in 1963 here in the U.S.  

 
During this week there are workshops, mentoring, matchmaking, and numerous other offerings in cities across the country.  For those not in or near those cities there is live streaming from the Small Business Association (SBA), Google+ Hangouts and other channels. Speaking of the SBA, on their website is a short less than 2 minute video of President Obama honoring the 50 years of the National Small Business Week.  He highlights how critical small businesses are to the American economy.  
 
For another view of the importance of this week, this time from a lender, check out the post from Brock Blake in the Enterpreneurs section of Forbes Magazine  Here he reminds us that a "small business" can be 1 or 1500 depending on the classification.  
 
Small business owners if you can spare some time this week to take advantage of all of the freely given help and advice, it would be a great way for you to help keep the economy chugging along - one small business at a time.
