THE GOODS TO GO BIG + MAKE BIZ LIFE EASIER
Here are the goods, lots of info that you may have missed this week:

Next week, both Tuesday 7/12 + Wednesday 7/13 are Amazon Prime Days, got a plan to grab the attention of all these hungry shoppers? My advice.

Next week, my fellow small biz advocate, Larry Hebert and I are visiting the Monterey Peninsula to optimize a retail biz owner’s cash flow.
