Last July, speculation swirled about who the next SBA Administrator might be. It had been five months since Karen Mills announced that she would step down, and we were all starting to wonder about the future of the post and the agency. I joined the conversation, though not to guess who the nominee might be — instead I put forth a list of qualities the next SBA Administrator should possess and embody. Now that President Obama has nominated Maria Contreras-Sweet, I have a few suggestions for her to consider.
My latest blog for The Huffington Post is an open letter to Ms. Contreras-Sweet. It’s a wishlist of sorts, with just three things that have the potential to provide huge amounts of help for small business owners are struggling to grow and create the jobs that our economy needs. You can read the whole thing here.
If you have any thoughts to add — about what I’ve written or ideas you get while reading my column — you can leave them below this post in the comments section, but would be great if you’d also leave a comment on the Huffington Post page, too. I hope this conversation can reach a broader audience on The Huffington Post than I can with just this blog.
Thanks for reading, sharing your thoughts, and sharing this with others.
