Holiday sales, election surprises, celebrities: Small Business Reading

    By owenl | Small Business

    turnovernewleafFor the typical retail small business there is only one thing to think about at this time of year - preparing for the holiday season. But for everyone else there is still the election at the back of everyone's mind. And then there are the usual management concerns, managing your website if you are an online business and for the entrepreneur, the usual startup concerns. The issues are serious for all small businesses - even for celebrities. All of these topics were covered in Yahoo! Small Business Advisor this week. You really should be reading it regularly.
