Last month I was invited by Thumbtack Inc to attend the White House Small Business Roundtable with Small Business Administration Leader Maria Contreras-Sweet. There we met key White House officials and discussed issues ranging from healthcare to how costly it is to set up LLC’s in some states. We also learned about improvements the SBA are making to help small business owners and those who desire to start a their own business.
The next day I was granted the opportunity to meet with Congressman Bobby Scott who represents the Third District of Virginia. I was able to discuss with him issue that affect photographers in the Hampton Roads area. Overall the entire trip was a great experience and I consider it a privilege to attend.
