Intuit has been hard at it, predicting the future trends and likely changes that will occur in small business over the next 10 years.
Whether it comes to fruition, or not, there is sure to be some essential food for thought in this report that could have repercussions for us all in the direction that we take our own businesses.
The report deals with the US but should track part of the way for any country. Forcasting growth in the entrepreneurial and personal business sectors, with a move away from the White Male Entrepreneur being the typical face of small business in the future, and the increase in business ventures from the fringe demographics - young starters and older people looking to fund a retirement they just can't afford, as well as the growth in female operated business, there are sure to be some interesting times ahead.
