Definition of small business

What is the definition of a "small business"? 
If you ask the federal government, it's any business with fewer than 500 employees. That's a technical approach to the definition.

Here's one that is more practical: A small business is one that is privately held (not publicly traded), where the management is likely to be the owners.
