Small Businesses Less Confident About Economy

Posted by on Jun 03 2008

According to the most recent “OPEN from American Express Small Business Monitor” survey, only 45% of small business owners feel that the economy will get better over the next six months. (This is the lowest showing of “confidence” by small business owners in the six years that OPEN has been doing the survey.)

The good news is that 71% of survey respondents say that they plan to grow their business over the next six months.

It’s an interesting mix of reactions from the small business community. While the economy certain is rocky these days, and it does behoove us to pay careful attention, the economy is not the Sole Indicator of your business growth and success. There are many things you can do to turn the tide in your favor.

    I couldn’t agree more about there being multiple indicators of success. I love the picture of the piggy bank. Affilate service offerings are an opportunity for revenue and expansion.
