A study insists use of small business credit cards was helpful in increased revenue and job creation between 2003 and 2008. But since the study was completed just before the worst part of the recession hit, we are left to wonder about the real impact of so much credit. After all, other sources insist that unpayable loans and low customer spending led many businesses to close. I wonder if any of them had run up big bills on their small business credit cards.

OK. I'll admit it. I'm a huge Star Trek fan, particularly of the vintage 1960's series. And with the growing popularity of a recently launched Star Trek fan site which ranked pretty high on Yahoo!

I hope the post is not just entertaining but also informative because it deals with a lot of pretty simple ideas about online marketing I've picked up over the last few years. Enjoy! Read More

If your product is awesome enough, price shouldn't matter. Check out this small business news applicable to just about everyone.

How many other similar experiences like this are there out there? Does Holiday Inn offer comparable accommodations? Certainly not. So the price of a stay at a traditional hotel compared to one in this incredible tree house is really unimportant. Can your products and services make your competitors unimportant? They can if they're incredible. Read More

Hi, folks.
