It’s almost time for National Small Business Week. The Small Business Administration (SBA) is celebrating its 50th anniversary and there’s a full slate of events and activities planned for this annual event, which takes place June 17-21, to highlight the impact of outstanding entrepreneurs, small business owners, and others from all 50 states and U.S. territories.

For the first time this year, National Small Business Week events will be held in multiple cities. Seattle, St. Louis, Pittsburgh and Dallas will each feature one day of events during National Small Business Week, culminating with the NSBW awards ceremony in Washington, DC, on June 21, 2013. You can find a full list of events, dates and times here; go here to find events in your area.

Each state’s Small Business Person of the Year will compete to be named the national Small Business Person of the year, with the winner announced on June 21 in Washington, DC. Meet the state winners here. And read my post over on Business on Main for more about this year’s event.

Pricing: Have more than one price for your product or service. Make one price seem more attractive than the other. People love a good deal, especially when they can relate one price to the other.
