Recently, I’ve started contributing a weekly article about saving money on small business expenses to OpenForum, a site that covers a wide variety of small business topics.
I’m also hosting those articles here on The Simple Dollar in its own “small business” section. If you’d like to visit this section, you can check it any time you like by visiting the “small business” link along the top of any page.
So far, I have two articles posted there:
Dreading the Cost of Software for Your Business? Try These Free Solutions discusses a giant handful of great free software solutions for small businesses, enabling them to redirect their resources to other things.
My favorite one, though, is A Culture of Empowerment, which discusses how my father used empowerment of his fishing employees – myself included – to drive them to achieve more, and also fuel his own business.
Articles from me will be appearing there weekly, and I’ll include new ones in the weekly roundup. Any time you want to browse through them or check for a new article, just hit the “small business” link along the top of any page.
Here are some additional great personal finance articles from around the web.
