The NFIB released new data.

A report from the National Federation of Independent Business suggests that America’s small-business owners are feeling good about the economy.

The organization’s index of small-business optimism hit 105.8 in December, the highest it’s been since 2004, Bloomberg reports.

Even more striking was the fact that the index jumped 7.4 points from the previous month, the largest increase since 1980. Business owners reported feeling optimistic about sales and business conditions in the wake of Donald Trump’s win in the presidential election, according to Bloomberg.

The report was based on responses from more than 600 business owners.

Bloomberg quoted Juanita Duggan, head of the NFIB, saying: “Small business is ready for a breakout, and that can only mean very good things for the U.S. economy. Business owners are feeling better about taking risks and making investments.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
