Don’t Go Solo: Engaging with your Sole Proprietor Clients

According to data released by the Census Bureau, 2021 was a banner year for startups and sole proprietorships, with business filings increasing in states whose start-up success represents the highest number of new businesses on record, dating back to 2004, when the figures were first compiled.
