America's Best CompaniesFor this week’s episode of the Duct Tape Marketing Podcast I visited with Jim Tracy, founder of America’s Best Companies. (ABC)

America’s Best Companies is a small business organization dedicated to providing the tools, resources, guidance and information small business owners need to start their business, stay in business, and grow their business while maintaining a competitive edge in the marketplace.
