Small and medium businesses are generally considered the backbone of a healthy economy. They provide a substantial source of employment, economic diversity and stability, and innovation within their industries. Yet, managing a small business and maintaining its prosperity often means having to deal with highly unstable conditions, and a considerable and unique set of challenges. With limited finances and resources, tough competition and difficulty in attracting quality talent, these businesses have to fight fiercely for their survival among bigger and more influential players - challenges that are especially faced during the first few years of establishment and periods of economic downturn.
