SAN DIEGO, March 11, 2013 -- It's NCAA® March Madness - the season for filling out brackets and watching teams of all levels compete for the win. In the spirit of the season, The UPS Store® today announced its upcoming Small Business Expert Twitter chat series, designed to help small business owners "get in the game," "stay in the game," and "win the game."

The good news - small business owners are not alone."
The chats, which can be followed using #SBOadvice, will begin at 3:00 p.m. Eastern on the following dates:
