Starting a Business
Things may be turning around for small businesses, which could result in more entrepreneurs incorporating
Optimism is on the rise among small business owners, reaching its highest level since November 2007, according to the National Federation of Independent Business' Optimism Index. Although figures are up, they still remain weak historically.
The report revealed that optimism has increased for four consecutive months and has risen from 1.5 points to 93.2 points. Despite the increase, the reading remains closer to that of a recession as opposed to a recovery.
"Although the November reading is higher than the prior 34 months, it is still lower than the November - December, 2007 readings by over a point, and those were the lowest 2007 readings as the index fell all year signaling the coming end to the expansion in December," the report said.
"So the index has climbed from its recession low of 81, but is far short of even the average value of the index prior to the start of the recession and far below values that have typified a recovery period," it added.
Many of the results had to do with business expectations, asmost small businesses didn't see their sales or earnings increase significantly last month.
