Last week, OPEN Forum held a video conference on SBTV with four panelists discussing a new road map for the SBA. We are all hopeful that with a new president and a new chief heading up the SBA, they will again be an advocate for all of the small business owners.
On the conference, they discussed 1) The state of small business, 2) What business owners need to know about government programs aimed at helping them, 3) What nominee Karen Mills and the Obama administration can do to help small business owners pave the road to economic recovery. It’s worth a listen. Plan on spending about an hour. You can view the conference at your leasure by going to the SBA Road Map Conference.
A few small business experts were watching and tweeting the discussion. You can read their thoughts on twitter here.
