SBA Programs for Veterans Looking to Start or Grow their Business  #NVSBW 

Time Management Tips  -  November 2  11am 

This class covers the programs and services the Small Business Administration (SBA) offers to veterans to help start and grow a business. Although the SBA is usually associated with loans, this overview will run through the SBA Loan Programs as well as our other programs and services including Counseling, Export Assistance, Government Contracting, Surety Bonds, and Disaster Assistance. Some of these services are for all businesses, while others are specifically for veterans. Presented by South Florida SBA.

Federal Contracting for Veterans & Service Disabled Veterans  #NVSBW  -  November 4  11am 

The Federal Government spent $ 20.6 billion on Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business (SDVOSB) contracts in 2018. This class provides an overview of the SDVOSB Federal Contracting Program as well as Veteran Owned Small Business eligibility requirements. 

The government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses that participate in the SDVOSB program. Joining the disabled veterans’ business program makes your business eligible to compete for the program’s set-aside contracts. You can still compete for contract awards under other socio-economic programs you qualify for. Presented by South Florida SBA.

Overcoming Career Setbacks - Soft Skills to Enhance Your Small Business 

Business  #NVSBW  -  November 4  12pm Noon 

At some point in our careers (working for a company or being our own boss), we will most likely experience a set-back, whether it’s a promotion we didn’t get, an exam we didn’t pass, that perfect job that slipped away from us, or a client that went to another business. Learn tips to: 
• Understand the types of set-backs that occur in the business world; 
• Learn to accept the reality of the situations; 
• See how to analyze the halt of progress; and 
• Develop resiliency and progress from failures and disappointments to achieve success.  

Presented by the Florida Veterans Business Outreach Center (VBOC)
