Starting a successful small business is one of the quintessential elements of the American dream. According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and small businesses create nearly two out of every three new jobs in the United States each year.

April 30 through May 4 is National Small Business Week! To join in this national effort and support small business owners, Better Business Bureau is hosting its first-ever National Small Business Week (NSBW) Facebook Live Series. The series is being led by BBB Regional Directors representing all 105 counties within our service area every day from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The interviews are covering topics on how to start, manage and grow a small business.
