Worker BeeworkerbeeEven though we are in the middle of the traditionally slower business months of Summer, there's plenty going on to interest the small business owner and entrepreneurially minded. On Yahoo! Small Business Advisor we highlighted stories about President Obama's ideas to help small business, looked at how to tell if you are entrepreneurial, discussed why Mark Zuckerberg might not be a good role model, provided seven lessons from the first year of a startup and visited the Waldorf-Astoria along with 250,000 new guests as part of a new business venture.

If you haven't taken the plunge yet, hopefully some of these articles give you the impetus to start your own business — and if you do, we have tools to help. Besides our domain name, web hosting and ecommerce products, we also have just added an innovative marketing dashboard that you can try for free even if you don't use our other products.

There was also a ton of good small business information from elsewhere on the web.
