Administration is a tough way to go They help a few and they do help. That's why I gave him two stars but for the most people will never qualify for their loans. You have to get into the fine details to understand how they truly operates.
The Small Business Administration has a resource website offering SNIPPETS of info for people starting out and building small businesses.
There's an option to be paired with a mentor and on the site is a statement that someone will try to call you twice and the third attempt will be email.
You cannot submit your request without entering your phone number, even if you tick the selection that indicates you prefer to use email.
It has been 3 weeks and I have not been contacted by anyone. If I have been, they never bothered to leave a message (absolutely IMPERATIVE in business; NO ONE answers calls on their mobile phone they don't recognize).
I have never received an email, either, so it seems this site is some sort of government tax write-off for uncle Sam; something thrown together to give the appearance of being helpful, but no working parts.
The links: I fit the women's veteran category, so I signed on with the Chicago chapter, and was slammed with emails from every state involved because the owners say there is no way to be on the mailing list for one city. FAIL.
This site is mostly worthless, in my opinion. Like any government agency that would consider ME worthless, it's a loop of specific unspecified (you read that right) data that still has to be verified state by state, city by city, and business category by category.
More frustrating trouble than it's worth, especially since the robocalls have increased exponentially since submitting my contact info. Not surprising.
http://www.sba.gov/healthcare is the place you need to go to learn more about the Affordable Care Act. I am including the link here because I do not think sitejabber has the ability to review individual links and only entire websites. This is a good starting place to learn about the Affordable Care Act and how it will affect your business. The most important part of the website as it pertains to health care reform is located here along with downloadable pdf files. I would just read all of these to begin understanding the entire process. http://www.sba.gov/content/affordable-care-act-training-materials
