Celebrate National Small Business Week!
More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two of every three new jobs in the United States. That's reason to celebrate! This week, across the country, we honor the 28 million small businesses in the United States and their innovation, ambition and hard work. Here are just a few of the ways you can engage in the festivities:
- The U.S. Small Business Administration is holding a variety of events, webinars and resource-driven exercises specifically for small businesses. Many of them have an online feed that you can access here. Just a few of the events include Growing Your Business with Direct Mail and Voluntary Benefits for Employees 101, just to name a few. Check here for a schedule.
- The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is also supporting National Small Business Week by holding a series of webinars geared towards small businesses. Topics such as Avoiding the Biggest Tax Mistakes and Payments to Independent Contractors will be covered, among others. For more information or to register, click here.
- Use your social media channels to salute the small businesses you support, and say, "Thank you!" Be sure to use #SBW2014 to join the conversation.
- Follow the Metro Chamber on Twitter (@lvchamber) and tag along using #LVSmallBizLove for important stats and need-to-know information about the local small business community. You may even win a few prizes we're giving away throughout the week, so be sure to follow along.
Check back to see as events, resources, and activities are added. On behalf of the Las Vegas Metro Chamber of Commerce, Happy National Small Business Week!
