Ask an Expert: Top 10 Trends in Small Business for 2010 (USA Today)
As has become a tradition now, this is the time of year when I offer my annual look at the top 10 trends in small business. While not a prediction column, there is by necessity a tad of prediction in it, since trends, by their very nature, are gathering forces.
Certainly this was true last year when I listed, to no one's great surprise, the economy as the top trend of the year, and sadly, it didn't disappoint. I am sure I speak for many of us when I say we are happy to say goodbye to 2009.
