SmallBusinessCurrents.com is powered by two people with a passion for small business and entrepreneurship: Rieva Lesonsky and Maria Valdez Haubrich. We’ve been working together for over 30 years, first at Entrepreneur Magazine and then at GrowBiz Media, the company we started nearly 14 years ago.
Small Business Currents is dedicated to helping small business owners and entrepreneurs start, grow, and scale their businesses by delivering the ideas, insights, information and inspiration they need.
