Business news is a type of journalism that tracks, records, analyzes and interprets the economic and financial activities that occur in societies. This type of news often appears in newspapers, magazines, radio and television. It can also be found online and in many news apps. Most news sources include some business-related content, but specialized publications such as trade journals may focus solely on this subject area.

A business is any entity that provides goods or services to consumers in exchange for monetary compensation. These entities can take on a variety of forms, from individuals with side hustles to massive corporations with thousands of employees. Regardless of their size or form, all businesses share a common thread: the pursuit of profits. Whether or not they are successful at obtaining those profits, they all aim to provide value to their customers.

The concept of business has evolved over time. Today, we’re seeing a rise in micro-businesses—small companies that offer specialized goods and services to niche markets. While there are challenges to operating a small business, the benefits can be huge. These small businesses can offer a unique product, create jobs and serve as a community hub.

This guide covers a range of topics related to running and growing a small business, including business planning, human resources management, marketing and financial operations. It includes links to online resources and information on local organizations that can help small businesses succeed.
