I would say that your USP is your expertise combined with your easy but authoritative manner. This combination means that you are able to share and explain complex ideas with small business owners that they may be unfamiliar with in a non-intimidating and easily accessible way whilst backing it up with the authority to actually motivate and compel one to move the business forward!
