Summer vacation doesn’t mean the end of big events you may want to attend either.

For example, later in June, small businesses will be highlighted in the DREAM BIG Small Business of the Year Award event June 14, 2016 in Washington D.C. And on August 27, the Small Business Market Expo & Job Fair will be happening in Atlanta.

  1. Summer is the perfect time to attend these events. One can whine that they are busy but summer is always a great time to meet new people in your industry.
