Hot Business Trends to Keep an Eye On

Hot Business Trends to Keep an Eye OnStaying on top of the latest trends driving small business can be beneficial in many different ways for you and your small business. It’s crucially important to determine the fads from the trends – and then capitalize on the trends.

What Every SMB Should Know To Be CompliantRieva Lesonsky, CEO of GrowBiz Media and SmallBizDaily has been covering small business issues and entrepreneurship for nearly 30 years. One of her favorite topics is business trends, uncovering the hot markets today’s entrepreneurs should be focusing on. Today, Rieva joins Brent Leary to them with you.

Below are the questions we asked Rieva:

  • (1:17) First Rieva, can you tell us a bit about yourself and your background and what you’ve been doing over the past years?
  • (2:18) You’ve been living the entrepreneurs dream over the years, so how has being in the dream shaped your opinions of what small businesses should know about?
  • (3:32)  When you have those rare occasions when you have time for yourself, what do you do for fun?

  • (6:30)  Do you see any fads that are currently upon us right now?

  • (16:05)  I’m assuming that these are areas that people are spending money in today’s market?
  • (19:59)  How much time should business owners spend on trying to find trends and determine fads?  How much time should they be putting into this?
