National chains may get more attention, but small, locally owned businesses are at the heart of communities around the country. In Arizona alone, around 99% of companies fall into this category, according to the Small Business Association (SBA). Similar numbers are reported throughout the U.S. in the latest data reported by the SBA’s Office of Advocacy.
This makes the small business community a powerful and important part of the economy. As a company that focuses on supporting the needs of small business, our goal is to empower business owners and their staff. This includes bringing updated information, following legislation and offering tools and helpful resources.
