At Small Business Right, we want to share our experience and knowledge with fellow entrepreneurs and those who are considering entrepreneurship. This isn’t a feel-good website that will only promote all the great things about being in business for yourself. There are a lot of really great benefits that come with being your own boss but, there are also some very heavy responsibilities and many battles to fight.
We invite open discussion on all things small business. Want to add a comment? Have a story to share? Think we got it all wrong? Want to be a guest blogger? Let us know. We can’t possibly know everything there is to know about being in business but we feel it is valuable to share what we have discovered.
Subscribe, share and have fun! We certainly are.
