After the conventions: What is next for Small Business?

By Carolyn A. Winston and Addison Sims, Hosts of Let’s Talk Biz

Now, that the Republican and the Democratic National Conventions are over what is next for small businesses and nonprofits; a skilled workforce, a politician or a statesman?  Like many of you we listened to speakers, and we had an opportunity to attend the Huffington Post’s event, What Is Working which focused on job solutions.  The speakers were dynamic.  Will.i.am was the most impressive.  He has invested, millions, into Dean Kamen’s First (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) and turned it into a back-to-school TV special with the hope of presenting kids excelling in science, technology, engineering and math as cool.  Many intellectually gifted children live in unfavorable conditions that could lead to failure. They can become tomorrow’s small business workforce with the proper education and training.  There are millions of jobs available for individuals skilled in science and technology.  To fill these positions it will require education, training, and retraining.
