Weekly Roundup - Golf Anyone?

by Employee on ‎06-10-2011 06:31 PM

VZ small_biz_info ICON.pngOne of the first things to catch my eye preparing the roundup was a U.S. Open-inspired news brief on the $80 billion a year golf services industry heavily populated by small businesses.  Like every business it’s seen some lean times the last two years, but the corner is turning.


 Entrepreneurs are a creative lot and their startup experiences are similar worldwide.  Take the example of CoolJunk inIndia where a disgruntled college graduated created kits from scrap parts for physics teaching. It’s messy bringing the product to market and capital is always a challenge!


If you’re thinking about a new business or changing businesses, look at Entrepreneur’s annual list of best franchise startups under $50,000.  Home-based businesses are another option and one of the best ways to get aSOHO (single office/home office) going is to network.  Social media is the natural tool to get that under way.


Don’t forget that our ‘Hardest Working Small Biz Dad’ contest is underway thru June 19th.  You could win $5,000 cash by posting a blog or a video describing a day in your life on the Verizon Smallbiz Facebook page.  Chances of winning are better than the lottery and you gotta play to win! Check out this video for details.


 And, if you’d like a free copy of the Verizon Authors Series' June book, read the post below on “The New Small” by Phil Simon and email us.
