Do you know someone who owns or works at a small business? Chances are, you do. Small business owners are our friends and neighbors. Half of all Americans either work at or own a small business. Small businesses create 2 out of every 3 jobs per year in the U.S. They’re critical to our economy.

That’s why I am happy to share with you that May 1-7 is National Small Business Week! Starting in 1963, President Kennedy, and every president since, has signed a Presidential Proclamation to set aside 1 week a year to honor and celebrate America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners.

Every day this week, I’ll be blogging about what it means for a small business to be agile. I’ll share the stories of our customers constantly adapting to move forward. Look toward the bottom of the page for a list of links, we will be posting a blog each day this week.

We have a lot of exciting activities in the works for the week. Follow us on social media for awesome offers, resources for SMB owners and more. You can find us on  And don’t forget – show your appreciation this week by shopping at local small businesses.
