Get Started: Business Owners Upbeat, Cautious about Hiring | Washington Post
Washington Post Story Features MarketPulse Report
Associated Press reporter Joyce M. Rosenberg cites the Pepperdine Graziadio MarketPulse Report in an article picked up by The Washington Post. Rosenberg focuses on small business outlooks for hiring, which are largely upbeat, according to her sources. These sources include the MarketPulse survey conducted by the Pepperdine University Graziadio School of Business and Management with the International Business Brokers Association and M&A Source.
Findings indicate that small businesses are sometimes purchased by those in need of a job, with a strong correlation between this particular need and the smallest businesses. "60% of the buyers of companies with price tags under $500,000 made the purchase because they needed work, as did 52% of those who paid $500,000 to $1 million," says Rosenberg, based on the MarketPulse Report.
