From Home Office to Post Office

Bigger isn’t always better. Take microbusinesses, for example – small businesses of fewer than 10 employees. They make up 75 percent of all employers in the country and fuel the U.S. economy.

They also drive innovation and competition, and some even grow to be larger enterprises that stimulate further economic growth. Oh, and microbusinesses happen to be big users of the U.S. Postal Service, as our recent white paper indicates.
