Our challenges may be new. The instruments with which we meet them may be new. But those values upon which our success depends — hard work and honesty, courage and fair play, tolerance and curiosity, loyalty and patriotism — these things are old. These things are true. They have been the quiet force of progress throughout our history.
With a new SBA administrator and a stimulated economy on the horizon, the Obama-Biden administration presents a streamlined approach to helping growing businesses grow even more. Specific initiatives have been set into place to aid the 27 million entrepreneurs in America. Results are the name of the game in this new administration, and some of Obama’s bold new strategies for small business include:
-A refundable Health Tax Credit, covering up to 50% of funds spent on employee health care
-Health care quality improvement and cost reduction initiatives
-Expansion of small business loan programs
-Increased investment in Minority and Women-Owned small businesses, as well as rural-based businesses
-Support of high-tech job creation
-Emergency Relief for businesses (including businesses affected by Hurricane Katrina)
The Obama-Biden administration is equipping small businesses with the tools they need to overcome our greatest challenges. With increased access to funding and quality healthcare for our employees, the sky is the limit for growing business.
As the new administration takes bold steps toward a brighter future, don’t you think it’s time to be braver as well? The only way to turn your business around is to take risks and plan for a brighter, bolder future. And the only time is now.
What is required of us now is a new era of responsibility — a recognition, on the part of every American, that we have duties to ourselves, our nation and the world; duties that we do not grudgingly accept but rather seize gladly, firm in the knowledge that there is nothing so satisfying to the spirit, so defining of our character, than giving our all to a difficult task.
