National Small Business Week, April 29 – May 5

For the last 55 consecutive years, every single U.S. President has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners. This year from April 29-May 5, 2018, Tenet Financial is joining the Small Business Administration (SBA) in congratulating all the small business owners who provide irreplaceable opportunities for commerce and employment. The contributions of small business owners include driving innovation and increasing America’s global competitiveness, says the SBA, and we couldn’t agree more.

“We’re a small business ourselves, so we understand both the joys and challenges of small business ownership and operation,” shares Derrick Skogsberg, founder of Tenet Financial Group. “Our business is unique in that we get to help other likeminded entrepreneurs realize their small business ownership dreams through business funding and it’s a privilege not taken lightly by our team. Thank you to everyone who has trusted us with their funding needs! Your business and referral is the best vote of confidence we could ever ask for.”

For those considering buying or opening a small business or franchise this year, here are some great resources:

Small Business Administration
The SBA provides a wealth of knowledge and courses related to small business ownership – everything from choosing a business, filing taxes, marketing, financing and much more.

Entrepreneur Magazine
Entrepreneur Magazine is a great resource for business owners, offering everything from videos, podcasts, blogs and other content to help you grow your business, become more profitable, address challenges, hire and maintain a talented workforce and much more.

International Franchise Association
Small business owners who operate in the franchise space have special needs related to their businesses and the IFA organization is a must-have tool in your toolkit of franchise success. The peer-to-peer interaction is perhaps the greatest asset in this organization’s toolkit.
