Finally...A Bail-out for Small Businesses

May 22, 2009

That's right.  It seems like somebody in Washington finally figured out a great way to stimulate the economy...by helping small businesses!  I mean, we make up more than 95% of ALL businesses and create more jobs than the big guys.  What took them so long? 

The SBA announced today that next month, they will launch a program to give struggling businesses an interest-free loan of up to $35,000. 

It's part of the nation's overall economic stimulus package and the SBA was allotted $730 million to loan out, interest-free.

It's a five year loan, and the recipients won't have to make their first payment for one year. Stan Nakano, SBA's district director in Salt Lake explained, "the whole idea is to help these small businesses make debt payments on existing loans that they already have.  They won't be charged interest on it.  Then, they can hopefully use that cash flow for other expenses, paying employees, suppliers, etc."

Businesses can begin applying for these loans June 15.  These loans are for established businesses only, which have been open for at least two years.

Pass this along to all of the small business owners you know that have been hit hard by this economy...and then let's all get busy and start stimulating!

Giving Back - Fun Run 4 Kids

May 1, 2009

As business owners, we know that life is always VERY busy.  And sometimes it is so easy to get wrapped up in our day-to-day routines and forget to give back to the community.

That's why every year, we help sponsor a 5K race called Fun Run 4 Kids. 100% of the proceeds from the race participants are donated to children in Africa in care of the Reach the Children non-profit organization. It is being held this Saturday, May 2nd at Canyon Glen Park in Provo, Utah. All participants need to be there between 8-8:30 am and the race will start at 9:00am. It is a fun family event with a 5K run/walk race for the adults and then several races for the kids based on their age groups.  It is a great time to get together, get some fresh air & some exercise, and give back all at once - now that's multi-tasking!

For any one that will be in the area, we hope to see you there!
