Let’s Celebrate National Small Business Week!

This year, National Small Business Week runs from April 30 to May 6. Every spring since 1963 the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) sets one week aside to celebrate the 28 million small businesses that keep the U.S. economy humming along. Those celebrations include a series of events around the country where SBA honors small businesses and their owners for the huge impact they make to local communities and our national economy. We wanted to do something special to help mark this occasion. So, every day during National Small Business Week, we’re publishing a ’round up’ post on Thrive Powered by ADP® that contains the most popular small business tips, recommendations and advice from the past year.
