To make the most of this growing trend, a lot of retail store owners are using LED screen displays.

Challenges Evolve Differently During the 5 Stages of a Growing Small Business

One major point of confusion is that there’s not even consensus on the definition of a small business. Some sources, like the U.S. Small Business Administration, define a small business as 500 employees or less, while others say it’s 300, 200, 10 or five.
