Prosperous Businesses - a new series profiling companies that are doing well despite the economy

According to an October 2nd survey by American Express ® Open Small Business Monitor, 75% of business owners plan to grow their businesses over the next six months!!!

Now that’s great news, but why don’t hear about this in the major media? Could it be that we are focusing far too much on the negative aspects of the financial meltdown?

Another interesting tidbit: 44% of businesses in the service sector have plans to hire over the next six months.

It seems that there is too much focus on market fears and small business failures. To counteract this negativity, I am starting a blog series – Prosperous Businesses - profiling companies that are doing well and even thriving in the current economic environment.

Stay tuned for more…
