economic outlook, one small business at a time.
"I am thrilled to see Thank You Small Business come to fruition. Helping small
businesses grow has been my mission for almost a decade,” said Carissa

Small Business. “We hope that all the free events and resources we have put
together for small businesses will give them a big dose of encouragement and
acknowledgement, arming them with a ton of practical learnings and resources
to help them grow.”
The ‘Thank You Small Business’ campaign includes 10 free live events for small
business owners to attend, over 20 free webinars for small business to
participate in, a campaign to mail 25,000 thank you cards to real small
business owners and to give thousands of business owners free resources and

the results will be released in a book, Thank You Small Business, in May 2013.
