It’s Small Business Week here in the U.S. and we were thrilled to have one of the foremost authorities on small business with us on The BIGG Success Show.

Alice Bredin is the Founder and President of Bredin, a leading B2B marketing agency, an author, and she’s also the small business advisor to American Express OPEN.

We talked with Alice about the 2016 American Express OPEN Small Business Monitor, the leading barometer of how small business owners feel about the future.

  • what is driving optimism among small business owners
  • the #1 concern of small business owners going forward
  • what small business owners want from the next President
  • why women small business owners pay themselves less than their male counterparts
  • how some small business owners are growing without hiring (even though, as a collective, they are hiring at levels not seen since 2007)
