National Small Business Week Celebrates Today's Entrepreneurs & Small Business Owners

This week officially marks National Small Business Week.
Were you aware?

NSBW is a week dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the valuable contributions of U.S. entrepreneurs and small business owners.

And if you're providing your writing and creative services as a "professional" (and for monetary gains), you would fall into this category.

According to the Small Business Association, over 50% of Americans either work for, or operate a small business.
And accordingly, there's no better time to share my good news, and an important resource for scribes of varying levels.

Some time ago, I was contacted by E-Junkie, (a popular online site dedicated to technology,
E-commerce and self-publishing), seeking my participation in an Ebook for individuals who want to launch an online business successfully.

It's called "Starting an Online Business from Scratch."


The title, however, is a bit of a misnomer.
As I was perusing through it, I was able to glean quality information and strategies that would definitely benefit business owners of all levels. And you will too.

You'll find insider's tips from 11 savvy entrepreneurs, divided into 4 major categories:
And here's the bonus: it's free!
With only 6 months left to achieve those resolutions we all started out with, this week would be a great time to revisit our goals, revise them accordingly, and apply some of the great information found between these pages, to optimize our success in 2013.

I hope you're on board! :-)

  1. Hi, Jen,
    No, I was not aware. But I'm on board - sounds super.

    1. Great to hear. And please get a copy of the ebook; you'll really enjoy it. :-)

  2. Will have to check it out. Thanks for the heads up!

    1. Karen,

      Please do! Thanks for connecting. Let me know what you think about the book.

  3. I didn't know it was small business week. How appropriate for me! I'm in the process of setting up my writing business.

    1. Talk about perfect timing! That's great to hear; keep us posted on your progress. :-) Thanks for sharing today, Susan.

  4. Ideas, finance, platform, promotion—great ideas! That's exactly the foundation of entrepreneurship. First, you start with an idea. Research about it. Find ways to finance. Present your business plan. Think of ways to market the products and services. Easier said than done—well, it does take a lot of hard work and dedication to be successful in this venture. Anyway, thanks for sharing this post.

    1. Welcome, Muhammad!

      Thanks for joining the conversation here.
