The reality is, that over my career working in leadership roles on Wall Street and at some of the largest banks in the world, I have seen the sad truth:

Small Businesses are often the first forgetten.

They are simply too small to support and too many to count even though these businesses, in aggregate, are responsible for the majority of the income American families count on each month..

For the big companies, everythingโ€™s about the bottom line.

And Iโ€™ve seen how little care and respect small businesses get, simply because they are small. They are so often overlooked, unsupported, and under-funded by the people, companies, and government agencies that have the ability to make a real impact for them.
