Survey: Small businesses heating up during the summer months


The temperature isn't the only thing heating up this summer. According to recent survey conducted by Staples, small businesses are also turning up the heat with 70 percent claiming they are beginning to implement changes that will prepare them for growth in the future.

Small business confidence is also on the rise. The survey showed 55 percent of small business owners and managers believe their business will experience growth throughout the remainder of the year.

"We are pleased that small businesses are taking time to enjoy the summer and are glad that our small business customers are feeling more optimistic," said Alison Corcoran, senior vice president of retail marketing for Staples. "The diversity of talent in small businesses gives me the confidence that they are ready to compete and finish the year at the top of their game."

Small business owners are feeling confident about their firm, which is allowing them to take some time off this summer. The survey found 67 percent of owners are planning to take trips during the summer months.

While small business owners are remaining positive, it still remains important for them to invest in small business insurance policies to protect them against potential lawsuits. The summer months are often a more leisurely season, but small businesses still have to be firm on protecting themselves.
