We know Small Business Owners (SBOs) are different. But how different are they? We decided to find out with our latest B-Side Study. Taking a popular psychological concept, “Fixed Mindset versus Growth Mindset,” we set out to see if SBOs adhere to this widely accepted and used principle. The results? Let’s just say our SBOs proved what we already knew, and taught us something we didn’t. You can read more about the concept behind the study in our Full Report, but we’d like to take this opportunity to introduce two new Small Business Owners who surfaced during our study — the Artisan and the Crusader. Not only are they different from your typical consumer, but they're different from each other as well.
