Celebrating National Small Business Week

For more than half a century, the U.S. Small Business Administration has celebrated National Small Business Week to spotlight hard-working companies, and this year, it falls the week of Sept. 20. We’re a small business ourselves, and we love supporting other small businesses — check out the personal recommendations from our Imagine team below:
