Blog

Ascend’s blog articles consists of two types of articles: Executive Summary and Technology Notes. The Executive Summary articles focus on business issues that should be of interest to the small business owner. Executive Summary articles will also often, either directly or indirectly, address the impact of technology on business performance. In all cases, we aim to keep the Executive Summary articles short and to the point.

Ascend’s Technology Notes are focused directly on providing technology information that we believe is important for small business owners to take into consideration. Our goal is to avoid the mundane and the minute, to focus on the forest and not the trees. Let Ascend sweat the details.

As a final note, Ascend does not buy third party blog content as many of our peers do. We author our own content.
