Welcome to The Small Business forum; a place where business leaders come to share ideas, best practices, challenges, or ask questions for advice.
Who Can Participate
Anyone who has jointed our website. If you work at a small business, or you are a newly promoted supervisor, an experienced manager, a business owner, or you are thinking of owning a business. This is a place for you to learn and/or contribute. If you used to own a business, or used to work as an employee at any business, or held a leadership position, again, your participation is welcome. We really do mean anyone.
Posting and Commenting Notifications
If you want to receive notifications of new posts or comments, or replies to your posts, make sure you are actively following the category. Then go to your account settings and set your notification preferences.
Note. If your post does not meet a category, then just post it under Small Business. A moderator can then decide if it needs to be moved to a category, or in some cases, to create a new category.
Be nice. Be professional. Feel free to disagree with anyone here; that is how we all learn. But do so with kindness, with the intent of expressing a professional viewpoint. Feel free to make multiple counterpoints. Just be kind.
Our moderators will not tolerate rudeness, profanity, or anything resembling aggression from one member to another. We believe in 2nd chances, and will endeavor to start with a warning after a post or comment has been deleted. If a post or comment is particularly offensive, what we would deem over the top, the member could be banned without warning.
SEO Spam and General Spam. For your first week you will be limited to 5 posts a day. Links to personal or business websites will be allowed after you've made 10 posts or comments. We want you to be able to promote your business or blog, but we need to monitor for SEO spam.
