2017 has given small businesses a lot to think about. I have been grateful to have the chance to blog about some small business experiences and advice I’ve given over the years. As it is the end of the year, it’s always a great time to take a look back and what we’ve learned in order to get a glimpse of where we can go. Here are a few of my blogs from this past year that I think are worth another read.
