  1. Annie: Thanks for compiling these entries from BizSugar and other places. It is a great way of continuing the conversation on different small business related topics.

  2. I came here void of any motivation. I just don’t feel like going out there and commenting. But I sat with what I am feeling and did it anyway.

  4. A FAQ page can save you a lot of time. When people ask questions, you can just direct them to the FAQ. You can even instruct your customer service representatives to do the same.
