Cheers to Small Businesses!

We’re celebrating National Small Business Week here at MyObjectives. We recognize that the country’s nearly 30 million small businesses super-charge the economy and provide essential products and services that most of us depend on. Throughout the month we’ll share insights we’ve learned from our customers, as well as spotlight successful small businesses.

While big business in the U.S. has declined since 1990, small businesses are on the rise, adding more than 8 million jobs. There’s much to learn from entrepreneurial owners both young and old who have cultivated ideas into successful companies.

Our software company, Alliance Enterprises, makes apps that small businesses use to thrive. We stand for inclusive work environments where employees are engaged and having fun, where communication flows freely, where everyone sees how their contribution matters, and where success is sustainable.
