National Small Business Week: Sharing small business success stories – and bacon

    By Owen Linderholm | Small Business

    BaconToday, Monday May 12th, is the first day of National Small Business Week and in honor of the event, we will be sharing some of our favorite success stories from Yahoo Small Business customers and we will be asking all of you to suggest and contribute your own stories of small business success on our Facebook account.

    More than half of all working Americans either work for or own a small business and small businesses create almost 2/3 of all new jobs. Here at Yahoo Small Business, we are proud to say that some of these businesses are our customers.

Yahoo Small Business is proud to be part of the success and growth of small businesses, whether those businesses are finding new customers online for a local store or service, or are selling online and are among the more than $65 billion in transactions that have been supported on our ecommerce platform.

    This week we will join the celebration by sharing stories of people who have realized their dreams of starting and building successful small businesses. We’d also like to hear your own stories and help you share the successes, tips, and inspirations you have for other people who are working to grow small businesses, create jobs, and drive innovation.

    Please join us online at to let us know about your favorite small business – whether it’s your own or one that you want to let everyone know about. Submit your success story and we will feature some of them throughout the week!
