| Just after my father died in 1987, I worked with the United States Chamber of Commerce as a field agent. My job was to travel around Anderson, Pickens, and Oconee Counties in South Carolina talking with small business owners and managers. This was a real learning experience for me.|
One thing I learned then was that most small business owners hated the Small Business Administration (SBA) and loved the
The SBA was supposed to hold small business owners by the hand and help them deal with government red tape and hopefully obtain small business loans. I have yet to meet a single small business owner who had any positive take-away from the SBA.
The N.F.I.B. is an advocate for small business. Small business owners pay a small fee to be members of the N.F.I.B. . The N.F.I.B. expresses collective small business concerns to our elected officials and helps provide feedback and valuable information to the small business owner.
When the N.F.I.B. talks, congressmen and senators listen. They know that the NFIB represents the voice of the small business. The information provided to small business owners by the NFIB is priceless.
As a way of disclosure, this website/blog is now an affiliate of the NFIB and does receive a referral fee if you join by following links from this site/blog. This does not change my opinion in any way. I would not endorse it if I was not behind it 100%.
Small business owners need all the help they can get these days. We have to deal with so many anti-business policies and laws. We need a strong voice in Washington to help get us through all of this.
