Groundhog Day: 25 Predictions for Spring’s Small Business

Chief Content Officer Jon Gelberg contributes his prediction

It's Groundhog Day, and while Punxsutawney Phil may have a lock on predicting the weather, we think our own readers are best suited to predict what the spring holds for small business.

When the snow melts and the daffodils bloom, business owners will be ready to reinvest, reinvent and redouble their efforts to break new ground, grow and even flourish.

Here, 25 small business owners share their spring predictions with BusinessNewsDaily.

Businesses will continue their frugal ways until they are able to re-build and re-establish themselves.
— Scott Allen Stouffer,

With the growing population of very smart retirees, small business will choose to tap [into] their knowledge, guidance and advice for their small-biz growth rather than the old-fashioned route of hiring someone full-time to figure it all out.
— Doug Poretz,

We will continue to see a lack of loans and investments for small businesses for years to come. With a corporate tax rate in our country of almost double that of China and some Eastern European bloc countries, it will continue to be a tough road for small businesses. People will continue to invest in businesses in other countries because of the high tax rate here.
—Neal Duncan,

This has never been a better time for small business. The Internet is the great equalizer. Small businesses can compete with much bigger businesses and market far less expensively by using blogs, social media and by taking advantage of new, location-based platforms to attract new local customers.
— Jon Gelberg,
