I WENT TO A SEMINAR HELD TONIGHT by the Hagerstown Economic Development Council and the Maryland branch of the Small Business Administration regarding the new America’s Recovery Capital (ARC) loan program that launched this week. For those of you who have been in business for at least 2 years, this is an amazing opportunity that you don’t want to miss out on. I’m going to give you some of the details from the meeting, as even most banks are not clear on the details of this program yet.
I had a moment of weakness the other day. The realization that summer is a slow time of year for our business, combined with the knowledge that we’re not operating in the black yet, hit home somewhat hard. Some might even call it a mini-meltdown. I lashed out at The Boss in IM. I got myself in a funk for the rest of the day. But sometimes that’s just what you need to clear your head and crystalize what it is we need to move forwards.
