I had the privilege, along with five other women small business owners, to meet informally with SBA Administrator Linda McMahon’s a couple of weeks ago.
McMahon was in Pittsburgh as part of a “listening tour” in which she plans to visit all 68 SBA district offices over the next two years.
Topics covered included healthcare, taxes, and regulations, all which impact the ability of small businesses to thrive and grow.
“I don’t know that we’ve had a president who has been so focused on small business development,” McMahon remarked. “You can write policy all day in Washington, but if you don’t get out in the field and listen to entrepreneurs, you don’t know what they need.”
McMahon, the 25th Administrator of the SBA, is the voice on President Trump’s Cabinet for America’s 28 small business owners.
