CNBC's The Profit and Comcast Business invite you to celebrate Small Business Week, Wednesday, May 3, 2017 at Real Art Ways, 56 Arbor Street, Hartford, CT.

Confidence is high in the economy among small business owners, as opposed to six months ago. It began Sunday and runs through Saturday.

Small businesses fuel much of the economic growth in our communities. An additional 300 small businesses were interviewed in Miami and nine other cities, and 150 additional small businesses in tech and medical fields were interviewed for the report. Lara Landers is the Director of Marketing and Events for the Wayne County Chamber of Commerce.

"National Small Business Week honors the innovators who take a risk on an idea, invest in their communities, and create jobs", new SBA Administrator Linda McMahon said in a video message to open the week.

More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and small businesses create approximately two-thirds of the country's new private-sector jobs.

This week is National Small Business week in the United States. "And our motto toward the business owners we serve with our content is "small business success delivered daily" which certainly aligns with the mission of National Small Business Week", said Anita Campbell, founder and publisher of Small Business Trends. Ninety-three percent say they're satisfied with the balance between their work and personal lives, while fewer owners (85 percent) are satisfied with their wealth and savings derived from their small business.

More than 1,000 small businesses nationwide, with revenues between $100,000 and $5 million and 2 to 99 employees, were surveyed for this report. We, as a nation, want you to succeed because when your businesses thrive, our community thrives right along with it. It's an opportunity to talk about why small businesses matter and the important role that diversity has in strengthening those small businesses.
