I’m very excited to bring you a special and extremely important episode today. Many small business owners are going through a very difficult time. We are worried about our own lives as well as those we serve. We Creative Warriors have heart, perseverance, and most importantly, grit. Additionally, the powerful financial influence we have on the economy is undeniable. So, now is the time for our voices to be heard.

Having been self-employed for practically my whole life, it is extremely important to me that I do whatever I possibly can to keep the small business community strong and thriving. With these uncertain times, it is important we take the action needed to explore what can be done for our future- both as individual small business owners and as a powerful community. Often we Warriors hesitate to ask for help. Now is not the time. There are resources to guide us and give us what we need to explore our futures. We have to know- and demand- that we are taken care of, because we are an integral piece of the fabric of our country. 

I’m very excited for our guest today. Today I have brought the President and Chief Executive Officer of the National Association for the Self-Employed, Mr. Keith Hall. Mr. Hall previously served as its Chief Operating Officer and National Tax Adviser and has provided consulting and tax services to small business owners for over 30 years.

Highlights -

    • 1 out of 3 people is self-employed. 
    • As a small business owner you’re not considered an employee of your own business. 
    • If you have a small business you qualify for a PPP loan. End of story. 
    • There are millions of people in line for funds and the bucket will always be refilled if there are people who need it. 
    • You can apply for a PPP loan online or you can find a local bank where you have a contact and ask them if they are an SBA lender. They can do the loan on their own and it will get the ball rolling faster. 
    • 1 in 5 of people retiring in the next ten years are going to have more debt than savings on the day they retire. 
    • NASE provides: education, encouragement, and a voice for legislation.
