Small Business Optimism

Here’s some good news from Inc.com.  A recent survey of 626 small business owners by American Express found them more optimistic about the US economy.  87% of those surveyed reported a "positive outlook", planning additional hiring and spending in the coming months.  Another 60% plan to increase spending on equipment, software, and real estate.  Only 30% said their businesses were suffering from the recent drop in new home sales.

This good news, along with predictions that gas prices may have topped out and could start dropping soon, should mean a good summer selling season.
