      Have you ever had one of those days when every customer call is seemingly about the same thing? Do you find yourself repeating the same answers over and over again?

    5. Be a single-issue voter for your small business

      Be a single-issue voter for your small business

      Americans are afforded a privilege which, while not rare on Earth, is certainly unavailable to billions of other Earthlings: We’re allowed to vote for those who represent us in government.
