Third Quarter 2012

Opinion Poll: Is Exporting Part of Your Growth Strategy?

Once each quarter KCSourceLink and MOSourceLink invite area small business owners to share their opinions and expectations on small business issues.  This quarter we compare their thoughts with those from November of 2011.  We also asked panelists about their use of exporting as a strategy for growth. 

Panelists responding to the survey are entered into a drawing for a $50 gift card to Office Depot. This quarter’s winner is Sherri Tabron.
