  1. Yay, the Small Business Book Awards 2014 is just round the corner! Gosh, how time flies 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing who wins in the Motivation category. Nonetheless, it’s an achievement for anyone to be on the list, so well done to all nominees in all categories. Roll on Apr 30th!

  2. Glad that the Time & Money Management Methods Seminar for Women Small Business Owners is online. This is something that I need so that I can maximize returns for my business.

  3. Just wanted to add the Conduit Mobile Summit which is being held in NYC on 14 May 2014 in celebration of National Small Business Week.
