Small businesses are sometimes called the heartbeat of the U.S. economy.
While an astonishing 98 percent of companies in the U.S. have fewer than 100 employees,1 the important role small businesses play is about more than large numbers.
Small companies are not just about business. Building and maintaining a successful company is highly personal. It starts with a dream. Turning the dream into reality takes dedication and a lot of hard work. From there, keeping up with an ever-changing and challenging environment requires determination and perseverance.
In today's evolving, always-on world, work and life continue to blend. Technological innovation is redefining how people and companies collaborate. And, the competition for employee talent is intense. Savvy small business leaders will take on these realities and seek solutions from their unique perspective.
