Small Business Weekly Roundup

Employee Emeritus Employee Emeritus ‎12-02-2010 10:51 PM

info.pngThings appear to be getting better with small business hiring making a modest improvement this week.  Hiring is typically tied to job creation and it’s always interesting to see what size of company leads in new jobs/hiring.  This post suggests that – depending on who’s counting – small business creates the most new jobs.


There’s other good news – small business bankruptcies are declining in most parts of the country according to Equifax one of the nation’s leading credit reporting companies.


In the midst of what continues to be a tough environment for small business, however, a recent Harris Interactive Survey commissioned by AMD & Lenovo found that many small businesses may be barking up the wrong tree when it comes to data storage and wireless network security.  You don’t want to be relying only on flash drives and CDs to back up data and you open yourself up for all kinds of mischief when you piggyback on other people’s unsecured wireless networks.


Remember, you don’t have to spend a lot of money for data storage, security and even a secure home or office wireless network.  Be sure to check out the affordable options from Verizon that start at as little as $1.99/mo for data backup and storage or bundle online data backup and our Internet Security Suite for as little as $6.99/mo. You need to stay focused on your business plan – after all, that’s where there’s money to be made.
