President Obama said “America’s small businesses are the backbone of our economy.” According to the Small Business Association (SBA), small business enterprise is determined by the number of employees, amount of average annual receipts, and can have up to 500 employees. TalkingSmallBiz is a monthly blog created to feature and promote small businesses, primarily the “classic” entrepreneurs who are living out their dreams in the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii and beyond. TalkingSmallBiz will bring new and established small business enterprises to light, for the world to see, that do not have a strong Internet presence.
