In this technological age, numerous government services and agencies are taking advantage of the convenient ways to spread information to the masses. Not to be outdone, the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) has taken to using social networking sites to be more accessible to the masses than ever before.
The SBA recently launched the “Ask the SBA Administrator” event on Google+. On Wednesday, August 27, 2014 at 4:30 P.M. ET, SBA administrator Maria Contreras-Sweet will be live, answering questions and chatting with people in the small business community.
In President Obama’s cabinet, Contreras-Sweet is the voice for small business owners. Asking questions and raising concerns directly to someone in her position can be extremely beneficial to your small business.
It is extremely important that voices from the Veteran-owned small business community and the service-disabled Veteran-owned small business community be heard. Veteran entrepreneurs and their businesses are eligible for special benefits, and it is imperative that these benefits not be left on the table. Additionally, if they need to be improved upon, people in Mrs. Contreras-Sweet’s position must be informed.
The “Ask the SBA Administrator” event is being hosted by Google+ Your Business. Veteran small business owners are encouraged to watch the event live on the Google+ page , ask questions and leave comments prior to the event for Mrs. Contreras-Sweet.
All small business owners should take advantage of this event.
