What the Stimulus Plan Means for Your Business

The mantra heard most often in business these days is "Do More With Less"

The mantra heard most often in business these days is "Do More With Less." For many businesses, cutting costs while trying to grow—or even sustain their place in the market—is easier said than done.

What could help many businesses is gaining access to some of that $787 Billion in Federal Stimulus Package monies. Not surprisingly, many small companies [94% of them according to a recent Intuit survey] said that, "success depends more on what they do for themselves than the government."

Steve King from Emergent Research—when interviewed by Entrepreneur about the survey—said he's not surprised by that attitude. The money has only just started to flow - like only 2% to 5% thus far. Steve is one of the experts tapped to clarify the opportunities presented by the Federal Stimulus Package in an upcoming online event:
