In the latest Intuit Future of Small Business Report,  new research shows that innovation will be essential for small businesses over the next decade as they try to thrive and survive by seizing new opportunities, improving their competitive position and providing more value to their customers. 

As a professional consultant in the role of building business sustainability with small businesses, I find the Intuit study to be directly linked with creating business sustainability.  It focuses on the key factors that drive, enable, amplify and shape the outcome of innovation:
•    Personal passion
•    Customer connection
•    Agility and adaptation
•    Experimentation and improvisation
•    Resource limitations
•    Information sharing and collaboration
For traditional businesses operating without a sustainability plan, consider the above values as existing small business resources available to you.  Part of being a sustainability consultant is encouraging clients to take on a shift in perspective.  For instance, the same passion you have for your business can also be expressed in an environmental program that you believe in. 

Home to one third of the earth's trees, the Taiga is the largest land-based biosphere and encircles the globe. Its immense oxygen production literally changes the atmosphere and refreshes the planet. It is this continuous renewal that has shaped Taiga Company's vision to drive similar change in the business world. Taiga Company seeks to be the "oxygen for your business".
