Cardi B Covers Billboard as Woman of the Year

From the strip clubs in the Bronx to the VH1 reality series Love & Hip Hop, and now the current unofficial queen of hip-hop, Belcalis Marlenis Almánzar, also known as Cardi B, is Billboard magazine’s Woman of the Year.

Where rural businesses can find support this winter

As 2020 comes to a close, an uncertain winter lies ahead across the United States. The coronavirus pandemic will continue during the winter months and entrepreneurs will be hunkering down to the best of their ability. This includes businesses in rural areas, which face their own unique barriers due to location.

In 2019, Small Business Majority released a report that examined the opportunities and challenges facing rural small businesses.

The survey of 530 rural small business owners sheds light on how to better stimulate and support rural entrepreneurship. Rural businesses struggle to maintain the same level of connectivity possessed by their metropolitan counterparts.
