    Fall 2017 Small Business Report Card

    Vilnius Industries Tracker

      The SCORE Fall 2017 Small Business Jobs Report link was delivered to email inboxes this week and we see encouraging news and data. They start off saying that small business employs almost half of the workers in the U.S.


      The report is categorized in to three sections, Small Business and Employment, The Gig Economy, and Small Business Sentiment.


      The full report is a 22 page PDF, but you can find a summery of it on the SCORE site, then click on the full report from there.


      There are graphs and charts in the report, we would have to say the standout statistic was Small Business Owner Sentiment which recorded some very high confidence levels reflected in the optimistic readings.

          Thanks for posting this!   For those who may be unfamiliar, S.C.O.R.E is an organization made up of business executives and entrepreneurs, They offer free, confidential counseling and education on almost any subject that a small business owner may need.  They also provide mentoring for you and may be aware of various funding outlets available for your business that you have not thought of..


          I've added a quick link to the S.C.O.R.E website so our community can easily access these reports: SCORE
