You know - the usual request - AskMe for the local guy. Not places trolling some marketing gimmick with a discussion board or two, sponsored by American Express/Bank of America, or with some business-related political agenda a'la NFIB. Instead, looking for places where someone can post questions or browse discussions about stuff like point-of-sale software, small biz management, negotiating leases, store hours, small budget marketing, e-commerce for the small guy, etc... and where the conversation is intelligent and mostly non-ranty like MeFi. (AskMe's great for this, too, but there's that pesky one question/week rule).
