The Economic Census and you
HispanicSMB Blogs By Hispanic SMB on 5/20/2009
We just received a request from the US Census Bureau asking that we complete a census survey in support of their 2007 Economic Census. Unlike the general population census, this one is offered to randomly selected businesses across the country. The responses are vital as they allow the government to extrapolate the composition of the country's business population. Should you participate?

Despite downturn Hispanic startups getting seed funding
HispanicSMB Blogs By Hispanic SMB on 4/25/2009
I just came back from spending a week in L.A. and took the opportunity to informally survey the state of affairs of Hispanic small businesses in that part of the country.

President Obama recently spoke at the USHCC 19th Annual Legislative Conference but rather than address some of the pressing issues confronting the Hispanic small business community, he chose to discuss the topic of education.

HispanicSMB Blogs By Hispanic SMB on 3/17/2009
Let's start by establishing that I am not the target audience of this great book, which is clearly written for professional women. However this new title from Latina author Ilieva Ageenko clearly transcends gender. "Connecting my Dots, a Woman’s Leadership Guide to Multidimensional Success" offers practical advice to women (and yes men) on how to balance professional and personal life.
