Happy National Small Business Week 2015

May 4 - May 8, 2015 is National Small Business Week, courtesy of the Small Business Administration (SBA) and various sponsors.



As a part of the celebration, there will be webinars held all week long. One of them is today - Monday, May 4th at 6:00 pm, EST. I thought some of you might be interested in registering, because the title is The Secrets to Crafting a Digital Footprint. I'll probably register and see what it's all about. I'm sure there will be some useful information presented. 





You can view the full list of webinars being offered RIGHT HERE.
Let me know if you register and attend any of them. Maybe we can compare notes!

To celebrate this special week, I've decided to extend our Woman-Owned Business Day coupon code for the rest of the week (through Friday). 
Plus, we're only TWO etsy sales away from 1,000! The next two buyers will receive a special gift with purchase (valued at $6 retail).

You can use code BUYFROMWOMEN to save 20% off any order $5 and up. To start shopping, just click the image below.



Remember - you can join the conversation on twitter, using #DreamSmallBiz, or just follow the hashtag to read all the updates and get the latest news from the SBA. You're bound to learn at least one new thing, I'm sure of it. =0)

Do you know of any fun online sales going on this week? Let me know with a blog comment. I feel like doing some window shopping online!

Don't forget to enter the current giveaway I'm hosting in support of another small business too. You could win an 8x10 photo art print or a $10 Starbucks gift card (2 winners!). Enter HERE.

This is really cool! I won't be off work by that time, but I should attend these in the future. I could really use some of their tips and ideas for small busineses. Sounds like they will have great information!
