Today in Global Small Business: The IMF Reels in Bitcoin

What's affecting me, my clients, my colleagues and other global small business owners:
  • In today's globalized world, becoming part of an international supply chain is key to the prospering of small businesses and their ability to create jobs.
  • How do you acquire nearly a million (1 million) followers on Twitter or more than six-five thousand (65,000) on Instagram?  It takes perseverance.  Presenter CamMI Pham will educate us on how to be bold in 2018 and get the world to notice you in the next WEGGinar™ held on Wednesday, February 7 at 11:00 a.m. Central time. The WEGGinar™ is no charge but you must sign up to attend:
  • Small business owners need to think about stretching their territory beyond traditional borders and bringing the entire world into play as their customer base.
  • President and CEO of eBay Devin Wenig, says "One of the most meaningful ways technology companies can make an equitable impact is by bringing back to life the real engine of the U.S. economy — [global] small businesses."
  • The tech industry has sparked rapid growth, provided access to global markets and created entirely new, massive industries — generating an estimated $1.3 trillion and accounting for about 8% of U.S. GDP.  Small businesses can continue to drive the growth.
  • The IMF calls for global coordination on potential Bitcoin regulation.
