As we embark on a new year, with most of us very happy to see the last one in our rear view mirrors, what is the economic mood on Main Street? Are recession-rattled small businesses that survived to open their doors January 1, 2010 rearing to take on the new year or are they still licking their wounds? Recently, Sam Norwood joined me on my radio program, The Small Business Advocate Show to report on the January 2010 Tatum survey of small business conditions, including sales, capital investment, capital acquisition and costs, hiring trends and other indicators. The good news is that all of Tatum’s arrows are green and pointing upward. Good news for small businesses!

And, as always, leave your thoughts on the direction you think the economic recovery is taking. Listen Live! Download, Too!
