This chat is part of National #SmallBusinessWeek, and the SBA team, along with numerous small business experts, will be sharing tips and resources to help small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs/franchise owners succeed.
To participate, head over to Twitter at Noon, ET, and follow the hashtag #SmallBusinessWeek.
Small Business Week
Small Business Week is a big event, and if you have anything to do with small business-or you’re going to, it’s worth your time to participate.
For information on all the virtual events taking place next week, head over to the SBA website.
One more thing: The SBA team reached out to me (because I write a monthly article on franchising for their Industry Word blog), to see if I wanted to join in on May 4th. Well, I am going to participate, and I’ll be sharing a few of my own business tips.
In addition, dozens of other members of the small business community are joining in.
A gentle tip from The Franchise King®:
Do not buy a franchise until you know EXACTLY how to do thorough research.

And many more.
From SBA Administrator, Linda McMahon
“The U.S. Small Business Administration is so proud to have been a part of small businesses’ success for 65 years. Since 1953, the SBA has been supporting entrepreneurs with the tools they need to succeed. The Agency – through its headquarters in Washington, DC; its 68 district offices nationwide; and resources partners like Small Business Development Centers, Women’s Business Centers, Veterans Business Opportunity Centers and SCORE chapters – serves entrepreneurs at every stage of their lifecycle. It guarantees loans for entrepreneurs who can’t get capital from other sources, mitigating a lender’s risk. It offers counseling on starting and scaling a business, from how to draft a business plan to how to export products overseas. It trains small businesses to compete for government contracts. And it helps those recovering from a declared disaster get back on their feet.”
So, please join us May 4th, at Noon.
