What are the trends for small business owners? That's what Staples wanted to know. They asked 500 U.S. small businesses owners (those with up to 20 full-time employees) to share their concerns and small business knowledge. The results are pretty interesting. Did you know that 40% of small business owners wish they’d known more about management before starting their business?
If you've ever stashed money in a secret hiding spot, you're not alone. 65% of respondents reported doing the same. The most popular place for your cash? Your desk drawer.
Speaking of cash, in addition to the results of their survey, Staples is also giving small businesses a chance to bolster their bottom line with their new giveaway. From 9/27 to 10/31, Staples is giving away a $5,000 cash prize every week for five weeks, including a $25,000 grand prize. For more details and contest rules, click here.
