According the the Small Business Administration (SBA), small businesses account for a significant amount of employment in the US. In November 2010 Americans were introduced to Small Business Saturday, a day during the year when people across the country are encouraged to support local businesses. By 2011 the US Senate officially recognized the day. Last year an estimated $14.3 billion in small business revenue was generated in that one day, a BIG win for small businesses everywhere! Small Businesses all over are now preparing for an even better result this year on Saturday November 28, 2015.
