Rieva LesonskyRecently I joined Steve Strauss and Susan Solovic as one of the regular experts on AT&T’s Small Business InSite. Small Business InSite is all about helping you work smarter, not harder, to grow your business–and every week I blog about a hot demographic, trend or market.

This week I wrote about a hot new market you need to know about: Millennial Hispanics. Catch up on the rest of my AT&T Small Business InSite blogs here.

On Anita Campbell’s Small Business Trends Web site, I blogged about the government’s efforts to fast-track green patents.

And on’s franchise blog, I wrote about a tasty new trend that’s helping food-services businesses of all kinds profit in a tough economy.
