It's time to celebrate the small, but mighty. 

"Small businesses view technology as a primary vehicle for achieving objectives rather than simply a support mechanism for day-to-day operations. Nearly six in 10 see technology as a means to reducing costs; and 55 percent intend to use technology to reach new customers."   

It was National Small Business Week and lots of businesses and news outlets were 'celebrating America's entrepreneur.' Fittingly, Entrepreneur covers everything you need to know about the week and lets you recap the biggest events.  Meanwhile Business Solutions Magazine reports on the importance on the IT and small business relationship.
