Few businesses do well without acknowledging business trends and using them to their advantage. We see this on a regular basis with our business clients -- both with those who do follow business trends and those who do not. Of course, not making changes is the easier path, but rarely is it the smarter path, whether your business is a law firm, an import/export company, a marina, etc.

Several trends reflect the growing shift toward smaller, decentralized companies, at least in terms of their overhead. Those trends are highlighted by tech companies such as Uber, Airbnb, and Facebook. Obviously the trends change from industry to industry but the list has some good ideas for business owners to think about. Take a look at the full list on Forbes.com.
