If only all small businesses have good online presence, it would really help improve and promote any starting/growing businesses to be exposed to potential clients or customers.

Why do you suppose small business failure rates are higher among that demographic group than others?


Do you have any examples of some of the early stage policies that might provide the support needed for minority or women owned business start-ups?

I would be interested to hear some ideas.

Great piece! Similar coaching by small business professional, Donna Price.http://www.bizology.biz/


I agree with you,once the early start up stages are crossed everything falls in place.Thanks for sharing the information.I like the post.
