In every conversation with Steve, he tells me interesting small business success stories that he has encountered as part of his research. Steve will be speaking at the GrowSmartBiz Small Business Conference, organized by Network Solutions and the Washington Business Journal, on Nov. 5 in D.C.
He also is involved with analyzing the Network Solutions Small Business Success Index, which is co-sponsored by the University of Maryland’s Smith School of Business. It surveys the competitive health of small businesses twice a year. The latest report to be released in September indicates that small business owners find marketing and innovation a challenge. I wanted to get Steve’s opinion on his experience researching small business innovation and on other new trends like co-working.

Thanks Heather. I hear more and more young folks are leaning towards being their own boss even if they have to sacrifice money and want to own their time.
