Karlo Rodriguez's insight:

"Time is money"...so the saying goes. But in all actuality, these are two entirely separate commodities; time being the only one that is constant for all of us regardless of industry or marketplace. Time isn't only money. It's a limited resource and needs to be conserved; utilized efficiently. Check out the tips on how to do so in this article. #mysaba #sabizalliance #smallbusiness

John Bagge is a caterer in Kirkland. He works big events, sometimes two or three days in length.
Karlo Rodriguez's insight:

Mention the word "Government" around a group of small business owners and you will more than likely see some of them grimace as though their most delicate and frayed nerve had just been plucked. The fact is that most small business owners often scoff at any implication that the government is somehow on their side. I enjoyed this article , probably because I tend to root for the underdog; and sometimes it's nice to see real-world examples of David beating Goliath.
