Therefore, you're missing sweet opportunities if these micro-size businesses aren't on your radar screen.
- From 2000 to 2005 the number of non-employer U.S. businesses grew by more than 900,000 per year
- 25.1 million firms are micro-businesses, firms with 10 or fewer people
- 77 percent of all U.S. firms are non-employer businesses, mainly firms with no employees
