National Veterans Small Business Week

October 31-November 4 is a week dedicated to the veterans who have served our country and started their own businesses. The Small Business Administration assists veteran-owned businesses in multiple ways. Certified veteran-owned businesses may also get preferential treatment when bidding on government contracts. If you're a veteran-owned business, make sure to go to the North Puget Sound Small Business Summit (see flyer below). Cate Taylor will discuss business certifications for government contracts at this event in Room 1C at 12:00 pm on November 2nd. Also check out our class at the Freeland Library on Nov. 9th: Hire Experience, Hire a Veteran
 

Small Business Saturday 

Before you eat all of that turkey for Thanksgiving, remember to start preparing for National Small Business Saturday on November 26. This day encourages shoppers across the country to support their local economies by skipping the big box stores and instead buy from their neighbors. Prepare your business for the holiday rush by checking out some marketing books from the library.
