Is Your Business Ready to Go International?

Is Your Business Ready to Go International? Think big corporations lead the way in exporting products around the world? You might be surprised to learn that 97 percent of US exporters are small businesses, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.   Our new infographic, Small Business, Big Trade, highlights the importance of exporting for the success of many small companies.

In 2002, only 27 percent of revenue from US exports went to small businesses. Just 12 years later, that rate had risen to 33 percent in 2014, the Census Bureau...

What’s Your Unique Value Proposition?

What makes your business special enough that it truly stands out from the crowd? It’s not your small-business know-how or your determination. Creativity helps, but it’s not the only thing. It’s your unique value proposition: the promise you make to customers that they can only truly fulfill by patronizing your business. Even if you’re already in business, let’s think about how to refine your own unique value proposition. How do you provide unique value? Your value should come to mind easily. What promise have you made to your customer? How do you plan to keep it? But the “unique” part? That’s what sets you apart from the competition. Any sports bar...

Working Remotely Is Bad for Your Productivity: Here’s Why It’s no secret that technology has made it easy to work from anywhere at any time during the day. The freedom it can provide an employee is nothing short of, well, sexy. Maybe not the whole working in pajamas thing, but you get my meaning. Look at it this way: As an employer, it’s like you’re giving your employees the freedom to be their own bosses.

In fact, people who telecommute roughly two...

How One Man’s Hobby Brewed Up a Business Idea

For many entrepreneurs, a local trend can spark a business idea. That’s exactly what happened for Peter Kinslow in the South Carolina Lowcountry outside of Charleston. After being laid off from his 25-year IT career, Kinslow knew it was time for something new. He began to renew his love of home brewing, and after a career of “working for others,” he says, “I wanted to try my hand at running my own business.” The craft-beer scene in Charleston had exploded, and he thought it only natural that the homebrewing hobby would surge alongside it. “It was really the perfect time for a dedicated homebrew supply shop here in...
