:: Use Equity to Hire Small Business Talent

Unfortunately, executives of this caliber generally already have day jobs. Sandberg was a vice president at Google, Kilgore was director of marketing at Amazon, and Schmidt was CEO of Novell.

The landmark law, which has increased transparency and bolstered consumer rights throughout the credit card industry, does not apply to credit cards branded for small business use. And while Loweys bill has the potential to correct this oversight, it has only a 1 percent chance of being enacted, according to GovTrack.

The roughly 37 percent of small business owners who leverage credit card debt each year must therefore learn how to get by without important legislatively provided rights if they wish to achieve debt stability and avoid losing money. CardHub conducted a study analyzing the small business credit card policies employed by the nations 10 largest issuers, and the five major takeaways are listed below.
