#SmallBizChat began in April 2009. It takes place every Wednesday from 8-9 pm Eastern time. The expert guest and participants type answers to questions from the host, using the using their Twitter accounts. Participants need a twitter account to participate.
The focus of #SmallBizChat is to end small business failure by providing tools and tips for small business owners as they start and grow their small businesses.
The target market for #SmallBizChat is emerging entrepreneurs 25-54, who have been in business less than five years. We try to balance topics on the chat between challenges for start-ups and issues that would challenge a business with 20 or fewer employees.
Information on the topic and each week’s guest can be found by following @SmallBizChat and @SmallBizLady on Twitter. A complete Q&A interview is posted every Thursday morning on Melinda’s blog http://www.succeedasyourownboss.com
