Welcome to the birth of The Daily Record’s newest blog, Small Biz Buzz.
We hear every day, from politicians and businessmen and women, that small business is the real driver of America’s economy.
So we decided to ramp up our coverage in The Daily Record and on our website. This blog will be written mainly by people who are in the arena: a vineyard owner from Garrett County; a husband and wife from Baltimore who own three businesses; the director of the Enterprise Institute at the Community College of Baltimore County; the director of the department of human resources in Harford County; a small business coach and mentor from Owings Mills; an expert on getting government contracts from Columbia.
They will share their stories, their successes, their failures, their advice. I hope you’ll be able to pick up some tips, learn some best practices and discover some pitfalls before you fall into them.
Most of all, I encourage you to make this a two-way conversation. Agree or disagree with what one of the bloggers has to say? Leave a comment and let’s get a conversation rolling. Want to offer some advice of your own? Please do. Have ideas about what small business stories we should be pursuing? Let me — or business reporter Maria Zilberman — know.
