This annual observance (May 1-7) was created by the U.S. Small Business Administration (https://www.sba.gov/nsbw/nsbw) to recognize the top small businesses, entrepreneurs, small business advocates, and champions.
A week is simply not enough time.
While doing research for this blog, it quickly became apparent that seven days is not enough time to salute and honor small businesses. Just look at these amazing statistics:
- Most everyone works for a small business: 7% of US employers are a small businesses (with staffs of less than 500). Organizations of less than ten people make up over 75% of all jobs.
- If you have a new job, chances are it’s for a small business: More than half of all new jobs are created by small businesses.
Those are some crazy-impressive statistics! So, to all of you “small” shops, offices, factories, restaurants, and other establishments: A HUGE thank you!
Here are some ways to celebrate far beyond May 1-7.
I’m not talking about a catered lunch or cake in the break room every Friday afternoon, although those are nice. I’d like to offer a way for you to make your many-hat-wearing-workers’ jobs easier and more impactful: with eSignature technology. Below are several videos you may find inspiring and interesting.
