Washingtonpost.com's New Small Biz Blog

Washingtonpost.com is launching a new small business blog today, called, what else? Small Business on washingtonpost.com.

Sharon McLoone explains that her blog will offer an inside look at small businesses and their challenges and opportunities. She'll talk to experts who can help small businesses (from start-ups to well-established) navigate today's digital and physical marketplaces.

Today Sharon profiles Eric Nelson, the owner and purveyor of Artfully Chocolate in Alexandria. Here's her summary:

Inside Artfully Chocolate in Alexandria, Va.

"Finding the perfect location often isn't that simple. Make sure you consider not just the physical location on a street, but issues like environmental hazards and parking. Eric Nelson had to reconsider his plans to open an art gallery co-op in a former dry cleaners when hazardous waste couldn't be cleaned up affordably and efficiently. He bounced back from that with the opening of his chocolate and art gallery, Artfully Chocolate in Alexandria, Va., where he grew his inventory by partnering with another small confectioners located in Alexandria's Old Town neighborhood."
