About today’s guest, Phil Simon:

Phil SimonThe little companies. The small businesses. The emerging entrepreneurs. From the chief seafood officer to high-tech dentist, how are they thriving by using technology? Today’s guest, Phil Simon, was on a mission to find out in his new book, The New Small (Amazon link). Instead of focusing on the examples we hear about all the time, Phil dug a bit deeper and found a slew of lesser known companies doing big things with technology, including a former RISE guest Craig Dalton from DODOcase.

In this interview:

-The 5 key emerging technologies small businesses and entrepreneurs need to pay attention to.

-Some of Phil’s favorite tech tools.

-Some stories of small businesses rocking new technology.

-…and much more.

As always, looking forward to your thoughts and feedback. How are you tapping into emerging technology for your business?
