What is a Small Business Anyway? Part 1

Define a “Small Business.”

LeAnn_zoomWho do you know that owns or works for a small business? I mean, besides me!

What is a “small business” anyway? One definition says it can have up to 500 employees! Nearly half of the US population works for a “small business” (more about that in my next post.) But a “micro” business has fewer than 5 employees, and believe it or not AVivoPur® is a “micro” business. According to Claudia Viek’s article Micro-Business is the Backbone of the U.S.

“Very small businesses create the jobs. Period. Firms with one to four employees, known as micro-businesses, are stronger than other sized businesses when it comes to job creation.”

Yep. At AVivoPur we do ALL we do with a VERY small staff!

  • We stitch and sew, quality control, package and ship our high-quality Magnetic Therapy products worldwide from our South St. Paul location in Minnesota. Fully American made and employed.
  • We carefully monitor the quality of our effective Nutritional Supplements so we can keep you and your loved ones moving and healthy.
  • We update web pages, write the blog posts, send out the social media and keep you informed on the latest for your continued health and enjoyment in life.
  • When you have questions after hours or on weekends, it is usually LeAnn or Jack replying from our mobile phones. Because even a Small Business is a big amount of work and responsibility and it never ends!
