Back of the Napkin unfolds the unique innovations and ideas that help small business owners drive customer loyalty, develop and retain employees, and grow revenue,” said Shklyar. “Entrepreneurs and the small businesses they run are the backbone of the American economy. We hope the conversations featured on Back of the Napkin – both the successes and lessons learned – inspire current and aspiring small business owners to dream big.”

New Friends, Fresh Fails.

New to season 3 is the SurePayroll Mainstreet Minute featuring Holly Wade, Executive Director of the National Federation of Independent Business (NIFB). Wade joins Back of the Napkin to share small business tips and resources. “Navigating the pandemic has been incredibly difficult for many small business owners, and the resources we spotlight during the podcast episodes will help them return their businesses to prosperity,” said Wade.
