There is one powerful way to improve your Small Business that we talk about frequently on The Small Business Show: taking ACTION. When you step away from talking and set your ideas aside to take action, you will set in motion powerful waves of awesomeness throughout your Small Business. In this episode, your hosts Dave Hamilton and Shannon Jean, discuss some of their favorite action items that can have an immediate and powerful positive impact on your business.

Join us as we share the actions we use ourselves, and as we introduce a brand new verb that we think you should start thinking about!
