MAY 01, 2015 from Entrepreneur
Running your own business can mean a lot of time on your own, in the trenches, building your company brick by brick, pushing the gears forward inch by inch. Next week, however, there are many opportunities for entrepreneurs to step back from the daily grind, connect with one another and be inspired.
That’s because the week of May 4 through May 8 is National Small Business Week (NSBW).
Organized by the Small Business Administration, this is the 52nd year in a row that the president of the United States has declared one week per year the official celebration of the Main Street entrepreneur.
“National Small Business Week is a chance to honor our nation’s 28 million small businesses and renew our commitment to fostering the entrepreneurial spirit that is central to the American experience,” says SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet, the head of the U.S. Small Business Administration, in a statement.

As part of the annual celebration, the SBA picks one Small Business Person of the Year who most exemplifies the determination and spirit of the small-business owner. Applicants for the honor have to be nominated — either by a business organization, professional trade group, another business owner, or themselves — and then they are then put through a tiered review process. Nominees are selected for their longevity, ability to withstand adversity, growth in employee headcount and contributions to the community.
One small-business owner is selected from each state, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam and the U.S. Virgin Islands. From that pool a group of six finalists is selected. This year’s finalist group will attend an event at the White House where one winner will be announced on Friday, May 8. Entrepreneur has been in touch with each finalists; all next week, we will be rolling out best advice, lessons and insider tips for entrepreneurs from these leading business owners.

Until then, here are three other things you should know about National Small Business Week:
The SBA Administrator will travel the country in a week. Every day next week, there will be a NSBW event in one of the following cities: Miami/Boca Raton, Los Angeles, San Antonio, New York and Washington, D.C. These regional city events include conversations with business leaders, like Office Depot CEO Roland Smith in Boca Raton, and opportunities to talk with SBA Administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet.
If you live in one of the five cities where a national event will be held, check out the schedules here and be sure to register in advance.

You can tune in from far away! If you can’t make it to the main five NSBW events, fret not, you can still benefit by watching the live stream that will be available on the SBA’s website at www.sba.gov.
Also, you can follow the NSBW events on social media. The theme for the week is “SBA: Dream Big, Start Small.” The twitter hashtag will be#DreamSmallBiz.
There is probably an event happening right in your backyard. The national events with the SBA administrator tend to take the show spotlight, but there are locally organized SBA events all throughout the country happening throughout the next couple of weeks.
For example, Small Business Week Eastern Missouri has a schedule of almost 20 different events next week, ranging from information sessions about how to get an SBA loan for your business and how to win a government contract bid to a SBA gala and networking event. And the Small Business Week San Francisco, which starts later in the month, on May 16, include events like, “Navigating the City Bureaucracy: Doing Business in San Francisco” and “How Facebook is Helping Achieve Your Business Goals.”

A Desk Accessory for the Soul
What’s better than listening to your favorite song? Listening to your favorite song on a portable Bluetooth speaker with L.E.D. lights that change colors as often as you change your favorite song, which is exactly what I’m doing in this video:
Since you’re probably wondering: Yes, it’s normal for me to walk around the office with a Bluetooth speaker on my shoulder. My officemates have accepted the fact that my job is unusual, so they stopped asking questions. As for you, it’s probably normal to have a Bluetooth speaker on your desk, especially if you have an office at work, or work from home.
If you don’t fall into either of those categories, that’s okay, because you probably have a desk or desk-like piece of furniture at home that this Color Changing L.E.D. Bluetooth Speaker from HIT Promotional Products will look great on.

Oh, goodies! At this products convention, they’re left holding the swag
What is it about a corporate freebie that makes it irresistible? Why do we, given the chance, grab up the T-shirts and the pens and the ball caps?
A big industry revolves around putting such swag in our hands. Last week, some of its representatives converged on the Long Beach Convention Center with their logoed light sabers, branded bamboo cutting boards, embossed squares of chocolate, campaign-ready seed packets and socks.
They talked trends. Did you know that many mortuaries now put their names on water bottles they offer the grieving? That Moscow Mule mugs — with shiny surfaces ripe for laser engraving — are red hot at big chain restaurants?
There were lots of goodies on offer at the Advertising Specialty Institute’s promotional products convention. But, alas, the event wasn’t open to the public.
The giveaway gathering was a chance for suppliers to pitch products to distributors, to sell them on freebies that people will snatch up, remember and, ideally, keep.
Think about it. If you eat a branded candy, you see the logo for a second before swallowing. But if McDonald’s gives you a car charger that sports the golden arches and plays a few bars of its jingle, you’ve got Big Mac on the brain every time you plug in your phone and drive out into the world.
That’s one of the reasons tech-related products — cord cradles, flash drives, power banks — are increasingly popular promotions. These are items people want and need and are likely to use every day.
One company at the show was hawking credit card-thin business cards with built-in flash drives. Almost all the free pens featured stylus tips.
As for a promotional shirt or reusable bag, it’s a gift that keeps on giving. It doesn’t just remind the direct recipient of your brand. It’s also a mobile billboard.
Some products featured in the show flashed and glowed — a big hit, their sellers said, with millennials. Plastic ice cubes that blink in neon blue, green or pink make a company happy hour more lively, they said. Tech firms have been known to stage light saber battles at gala events. At $4 or $5 a pop, said Jeff Wheat of Alight Promos, they make great party favors.
In the mix too were old-fashioned companies, including Fisher Space Pens and Bicycle Playing Cards, which offers completely customized decks.
The advertising institute’s mascot is a giant red exclamation point named Promo, who has a big smile and friendly googly eyes. And everything associated with the convention was branded: One company that markets such items as pens with pull-out calendars put its name on the participants’ lanyards. Clipped onto each lanyard was a neoprene sleeve holding a tube of lip balm. The promotional lip balm company’s name, naturally, appeared on the sleeve.
This crowd does not like to leave valuable real estate blank.

That’s why the institute’s public relations manager, Dawn Shurmaitis, covered the exterior surfaces of a Mazda Protege in logoed magnets, Slinkys, dolls, pens and much more in order to take the car on a promotional road trip. It leaves Monday on a 2,700-mile journey across 12 states. See it on the road, tweet #ASIpromocarand, of course, a free T-shirt is yours.
Many of the sales pitches at the two-day convention were low-key, perhaps because it was a crowd of old hands.
The booth with the Moscow Mule mugs, however, attracted a steady stream of potential buyers because of the showmanship of 28-year-old Nemanja Komadina. His hands were in constant motion as he demonstrated product after product — an “EZ fill flask” whose top flipped back to reveal a wide opening for pouring, a shot-size liquor bottle called “the hitch” that clips onto your glass.
Komadina had one for Jack Daniel’s, one for Southern Comfort. “Let’s say you go get a whiskey and Coke and you don’t know what kind of whiskey” the bartender poured, he said. “Next time you recognize the brand. You know the shape. You know the color.”
He had hitches in the shape of footballs too, ready for NFL team logos. “Everything we do,” he said of his company, RP & Associates of Hermosa Beach, “is for a brand.”
Moscow Mule mugs, Komadina said, account for at least 70% of sales. His actually aren’t made of pure copper, but coated stainless steel.
“Everybody wants the vintage copper look,” he said. For now. “I’m 100% aware that six months from now, if I have a stock of these, they’ll be no good for me. It’ll be over.”
People hovered around his table, hoping for mug samples. Some carried large carts to hold their loot. But quite a few distributors came with only small bags or purses.
They knew all too well that once you get this free stuff home, the zeal that made you lunge for it, like the latest fad, often fades.
