Top 5 News and Resource Sites for Your Small Business

At Mischa Communications, we’re all about giving you the tips, tricks and tools you need to grow your small business, from marketing to content development to social media and beyond. But while we keep our collective fingers securely on the pulse of small business news and share the great things that come across our feeds, we leave the actual reporting of said news to others.

We don’t shy away from naming out sources. If you’re looking for some great news sites and other resources for small businesses, we’ve collected a few of our favorites!

The Small Business Association (SBA)

The SBA website contains plenty of information to help you plan, launch, manage and grow your small business. Want advice on how to apply for (and win) government contracts? Need info on the benefits of starting a veteran-owned business? Looking for someone who can help you get the startup capital you need to get your small business off the ground? It’s all there!

The SBA is a fantastic resource for anything related to your small business. Bookmark it, pin it, or set it as your homepage — but whatever you do, don’t ignore it!


SCORE is a resource partner of the SBA and focuses primarily on matching small business owners with qualified mentors in their area. With over 300 chapters in the US alone, you don’t have to travel far to benefit from the expertise of someone who’s “been there” and is more than willing to help you succeed.

Not ready to commit to a mentor yet? No problem! The site also provides live and recorded webinars on everything small business, as well as on-demand courses you can take at your leisure to hone your entrepreneurial expertise. shares news for businesses big and small with videos, podcasts and good old-fashioned articles. No matter what your budget might be, or what stage your business is currently in, there’s a ton of regularly updated information.

Don’t miss the Business Forms and Templates section on the website — you’ll find plenty of free downloadable resources, such as independent contractor agreements, invoice templates, profit and loss statements, and more! (We did mention the word “free,” right?)

Small Business Trends

A site devoted to small business owners, Small Business Trends is an award-winning online publication that shares news, resources and advice with small business owners everywhere.

Whether you’re looking for information on marketing, management, technology, finance or anything else business-related, you’re sure to find it here.

Your Local Chamber of Commerce

We’ve talked before about the benefits your local chamber of commerce can offer, but it bears repeating: If you want to increase your visibility, meet like-minded people, gain access to training and education you might not otherwise have discovered, and be the first to know about community events, your chamber is a resource you can’t ignore.

Online resources are great, but you can’t beat learning about what’s going on right in your own community!

Whether you turn to a huge online resource like or prefer to read our casual and quirky blogs, being a successful small business owner requires you to stay on the cutting edge of your profession. The more you know about the small business world, the better positioned you’ll be to prosper in it!

We might not have a Pulitzer hanging on our wall like some mainstream news sites, but we’re always ready, willing and able to share our knowledge with our clients! Reach out today and let’s get started making tomorrow just a bit better for your small business!
