Tip: The small business landscape is constantly in flux – from new social media channels and tools for marketing, to changes in policies at various ecommerce marketplaces, to new ways to access financial capital, to shifts in the cost and availability of shipping products and services. No small business owner has the time to be an expert at everything or the financial resources to pay for someone else’s expertise, but missing out on critical developments can be costly. That’s why it’s important to take advantage of online resources like Thinking Forward that aggregate the information that’s most helpful to moving your business forward and that give you direct access to seasoned experts without draining your capital.
