SBA Announces Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) with the Defense Department

On Dec. 9, 2020, the U.S. Small Business Administration will join the Department of Defense’s Military Spouse Employment Partnership (MSEP) for a virtual ceremony. The SBA is one of 85 new partners joining MSEP, bringing the total number of employers to 500.

MSEP connects military spouses with hundreds of partner employers who commit to recruit, hire, promote and retain military spouses. Since its inception in 2011, MSEP employers have hired more than 175,000 military spouses.

“SBA proudly joins this partnership, which will strengthen our Agency’s dedication and support to the one million military spouses in our nation’s military community located around the world,” said SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza. “Military spouses are skilled, diverse, problem solvers, and we welcome their contributions to SBA.”

The SBA Office of Veterans Business Development also ensures that military spouses and service members remain empowered to grow and succeed as small business owners. The SBA provides veterans and their spouses with valuable business ownership tools, including entrepreneurial training, government contracting, disaster assistance and capital access.

“It is a privilege for SBA to enter into this partnership. Our Agency understands the challenge for military spouses to find and maintain employment with frequent change of station moves,” says Elias Hernandez, SBA Chief Human Capital Officer. “Military spouses contribute significantly to our nation, and SBA looks forward to offering opportunities to these talented individuals who support their spouses serving our country.”

For those interested in viewing the SBA’s induction into the partnership, the Department of Defense will live stream the opening session on the Military OneSource Facebook page, as well as the individual induction ceremony that will be live-streamed on the Spouse Education and Career Opportunities Facebook page at 1 p.m. EST.

National Write a Business Plan Month

National Write a Business Plan Month

December is National Write a Business Plan Month

A good business plan guides you through each stage of starting and managing your business. You’ll use your business plan as a roadmap for how to structure, run, and grow your new business. It’s a way to think through the key elements of your business.

Business plans can help you get funding or bring on new business partners. Investors want to feel confident they’ll see a return on their investment. Your business plan is the tool you’ll use to convince people that working with you — or investing in your company — is a smart choice

This is a good reminder to review your business plan and make any necessary adjustments.
