Small Business
A Special Advertising Supplement sponsored by Scotiabank - Monday, October 22, 2001

Technology rides to the rescue of SMEs
space
Smaller businesses face some bigger challenges in the wake of the terrorist attacks Sept. 11, but Ray Boggs believes technology can help.

What small businesses have to do to thrive
space
A recession is pretty much upon us and small business is up against tough odds. Sheer scale of operation and the resulting economies that go along with being big, such as being able to order supplies with big discounts, favour large firms.

New software offers security, mobility for the hard drives behind SMEs
space
Security is a critical issue for any business, but installing the right technology can be daunting and the costs frightening for smaller organizations.

Management model critical to growth
space
Small business, by its very nature, is close to its customers. But depending on past goodwill and relationships may not be enough as Canada and the world move into a combination of recession and war.

How SOHOs can make the most of deductions
space
Self-employment at home is a mixed blessing. There may be fewer interruptions than at an office, though there can be more distractions.

SMEs 'resilient' in face of worry
space
As the war against terrorism continues, Canada's small-business owners are putting up a resilient front. That's the finding of a survey conducted by the Canadian Federation of Independent Business in the days after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks on the United States.

How small businesses can survive
space
The world economy has come full circle from a reliance on old-fashioned cyclical goods such as trucks and washing machines to a fascination with technology. Now it's back to the basics of getting along in everyday life.

The rise and fall of e-hopes
space
It is not an exaggeration to say that there is no industry that has produced more disappointments and perhaps ruined more fortunes than e-business. Yet underlying the collapses of such high-profile firms as delivery service webvan.com are less well-known stories about a part of the industry that has generated good returns: business to business, or B2B, marketing and supply-chain management.

Read for all you're worth
space
You just may see yourself in Sam Geist's latest book -- literally. The cover of Would You Work For You? is a mirror, a shiny, silver square under the title that allows you to stare at yourself.

How to structure your time
space
In this age of multi-tasking, when one job runs into another and no task seems to be completed, how can entrepreneurs make better use of one of their most precious resources -- their time?

Where to go when you need money
space
There are many more options for small businesses to obtain financing than a decade ago. So says Michael Slan, a lawyer and partner at the Toronto law firm of Fogler Rubinoff.

Where start-ups can find help
space
The word incubator conjures up images of fuzzy baby chicks basking under warm grow lights, or perhaps of a tiny baby in a plexiglas cocoon being nursed to greater strength and health.
