Small business has been a focus at Patch since we first started.
We aim to support small businesses in our communities and to help them use Patch as a way to tell the stories of small businesses across our country.
For our small business community, we bring you a weekly roundup of top stories from Small Business Patch, your online source for small business news, tips, and insights to help your business grow and prosper.
Here's this week's roundup:
