Full Speed Ahead

Welcome to the second issue of SmallBiz, the magazine from the editors of BusinessWeek that addresses the unique challenges facing executives managing small companies. I am delighted to report that reader response to our June debut has been overwhelmingly positive, which is one of the reasons we've committed to publishing SmallBiz quarterly in 2005 and are now making copies available at select Barnes & Noble and Borders stores.

As you probably know, small companies represent over 99% of all employers, and they employ half of all private-sector employees in the U.S. And no one is better suited to deliver relevant insight and analysis to the important group of executives managing these companies than the editors of BusinessWeek.

BusinessWeek has been the leading voice on business and the economy for 75 years. By focusing on the issues most important to small business -- technology, health care, taxes, financing, recruiting, sales, and marketing -- SmallBiz promises to be a powerful resource for your business.

I wish you success and prosperity in 2005. More useful info, and more often
