Lessons To Learn From The Small Business Revolution

More businesses shut down than start-up every year, according to Forbes, and of the 540,000 businesses that open their doors annually, only half make it to year five. So what does it take to keep your small business from becoming a statistic?

The Small Business Revolution is a campaign to honor small businesses for their unique customer service and sleepless passion. Later this year, the Deluxe Corporation will release a full-length documentary featuring more than 100 small business owners across the U.S., who will share their stories of success and setback.

Deluxe’s chief brand and communications officer Amanda Brinkman can reveal some reoccurring themes and new ideals from their shared stories, some of which could mean the difference between a company that lasts 2 years and a one that carries generations.
