The first ever Wave Small Business Report is ready to read, and it provides an exclusive look at the world of small business owners. It's full of insights into questions like: Why do small business owners do what they do? Is the recession over? And what's the state of entrepreneurship in 2012?

The report is drawn from a survey of North American small business owners, and gives an in-depth perspective into the motivations of small business owners around their business activities, along with where they see their businesses going in the coming year.   

If you want to know what other small business owners in North America are saying today, or to sign up for future reports, check out the Wave Small Business Report page now.
