More good news. Another study says small businesses are concentrating on growth.

A day ago we took a look at stats compiled by Intuit which made it clear that small business job growth – although modest – is continuing. Today there’s more good news. MSNBC spoke with Rafael Pastor, CEO of Vistage (an organization which is comprised of more than 14,000 CEOs in 15  countries), and Pastor said that small businesses are now concentrated primarily on growth. 66% of small business expect to see increases in revenue in the next year and nearly 90% of small business don’t expect there to be a double dip in the economy.

There are several concerns though. Small businesses are closely following whether tax cuts will be extended and there are about how about potential increases in healthcare costs. But the overall outlook remains positive, and it appears the economy is continuing to slowly get back on track.

Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t let you post MSNBC videos on its blogs, but I highly recommend viewing the video here.
