Entrepreneurs Doing Well

As the economy has picked up, so has the performance of entrepreneurs and other small businesses.

According to a new research study by Manta, the largest online community dedicated to small businesses:

“Small business success has increased since last year. The research, which surveyed 1,105 members of Manta’s small business community, found that 68 percent of small business owners reported the first half of 2014 to be a successful period for their business, up 12 percent from this time last year.  Moreover, an overwhelming majority (83 percent) of small business owners reported they are optimistic about business prospects looking ahead to the second half of the year.”

Take a look at the following infographic from Manta, which summarizes the main findings of its study.
