The recession, and after effects of the recession, have been quite a challenge for small business owners. In a recent post on the PayAnywhere blog, the slow and steady rise in retail sales was discussed.
According to a survey conducted by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB), small business owners saw a significant boost in sales in July. Not only that, Q2 was the second highest growth spurt experienced in quite some time.
That being said, the business owners surveyed expect to see a bit of a dive in sales for the remainder of the calendar year.
While sales for 2014 has been positive for many small business owners, which is not to say that the economy has fully recovered—just that there is more breathing room in consumer budgets.
