Watch as I share how I received some of the best business experience in the world and grew to love business.

Why does big business like small business? Here are several reasons I gave at a speaking event in La Jolla, CA. They include:

• Small businesses are easy to work with.

• Small businesses don’t have teams of people or lawyer after lawyer analyzing every line of a contract.

• Small businesses are fast to respond.

• Small businesses are available.

• Small businesses can change course and can create new ideas.

These are just some of the reasons I give on why big businesses like small businesses. Watch the video to hear more reasons and the stories behind these reasons.

My most favorite thing to talk about is small business. And my most favorite people to talk to are small business owners. And in this NSBA Leadership Group Presentation Video, I discuss what we deal with as a small business owner from wearing many hats to the legislative update.

Joining me in this presentation is Todd McCracken, CEO of the NSBA.
