Earlier this year, Microsoft inaugurated the Office Small Business Academy, a monthly educational and thought leadership webcast series created for small business owners as "a source of ideas, inspiration, and smarter ways of running a business." In each episode, host Caroline Goles sits down with entrepreneurial experts to learn how their proven techniques can help other people growing their business.
