CHANGING PERSPECTIVES – A 2014 Forecast on The Emergence of Small Scale Businesses, How To Start One, and Focusing On Sustainable Progress

The number of small businesses across the word has staggeringly increased – that’s undeniable. Even though the bigger businesses and multi-national companies have considered a massive cut down on their manpower requirement, it is very noticeable that small businesses have, at the same time, added over 8 million jobs in the US alone. If we look at this on a positive note, there are better things that are yet to materialise in 2014. I reckon that more businesses will come up compared to the ones established in the previous years.

How Can Startups Use The Power Of Social Media (Infographic) – Business 2 Community

The Power Of Social Media There was a time (even a couple of years back) when enough credit was not given to the power of social media.

Everything You Wanted To Know About The Giant Elance, oDesk Merger & Ensuing Backlash (But Were Afraid To Ask) | TechCrunch.

Earlier this year, Seamless and Grubhub announced that their companies would be joining forces in a blockbuster merger. Already two of the biggest names in online food-ordering, the prospect of a combined “Grubless” sent ripples through the market.
