Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) June 15, 2012
A common challenge that most small businesses are facing is a skills mismatch. This is because numerous organizations are not focused on using tools and tactics to adjust with new transformations in the marketplace. Evidence of this can be seen with comments from the Minneapolis Fed President (Narayana Kocherlakota) and Federal Reserve Chairman (Ben Bernanke). They believe that the recent challenges in the economy are from a structural skills mismatch. This is having an impact on small businesses by not providing them with the talent they need to remain competitive. At the same time, this is hurting their ability to utilize technology to reach out to new customers. The long term results are that any kind of economic recovery has been severely limited. To deal with these kinds of challenges, entrepreneurs need to use a variety of tools in addressing a number of problems. One the most innovative solutions is the Small Business Directory from B2B e Trader.
