Many small businesses fear growth proper now, they worry about hiring additional personnel, and they are absolutely involved approximately in the future. Should they be? We understand that network banks are involved and there aren’t a variety of small business loans happening properly now. Certainly, as a former franchisor before retirement, it is my rivalry that I wouldn’t pour money right into a small commercial enterprise proper now, a whole lot much less contact it with a 10-foot pole. Let me give an explanation for;
Why could you want to start a business in which you had to rent humans with all the new Obama administration guidelines, and this ultra-modern AFO-CIO appointment to the department of hard work is horrifying too, it’s going to be truly tough on small organizations. No longer long in the past, I was explaining all this to an acquaintance who changed into shopping for a current commercial enterprise and thinking about the hiring of an employee to assist her in her commercial enterprise and he or she asked me; “tell me more. My guess is that I’d have a couple of part-time girls.”
So have to my acquaintance start her business and hire element-time employees? Don’t know, no person knows what was in that darn Health Care bill, the small commercial enterprise would not understand, records flow sucks, the management hasn’t said, it is all vague and NO Small business man or woman of their right mind could hazard going into enterprise proper now knowing they had rent personnel. The President was given on television and made a few vague inane speeches about how this would help small corporations? No details, none coming near, terrible communique process. Terrible – and pretty frankly it is completely and truly un-desirable.
This group of leaders doesn’t know what the heck they may be doing. We need a better crew and a few commonplace feels in the back of it. Those human beings have in no way had to make a payroll of their lives, it has to be a pre-requisite for a public workplace, how on the earth can each person believe they could run matters without working expertise of the realities of going for walks a commercial enterprise? Now then, I used to be reading in a few trade journals in numerous industries all the phase-ins for fitness care insurance regulation compliance, it’s a mess.
Worse, it’ll be an absolute problem on small commercial enterprise, and medical expenses are nonetheless growing, and growing, and growing. Over the past decade, those fees have outpaced inflation by means of 10:1, and they just preserve going? Tough to say what gas they may be the usage of however we want that for the space shuttle – severely folks, that is a disaster for the enterprise network, and it isn’t going to help anybody, most effective enhance charges.
And those wonder why jobs aren’t returning? Seventy-five% – plus of our jobs are thru small commercial enterprise in America, however, the politicians are too busy coddling lobbyists of massive corporations to even worry approximately it. It is all a show, it is all BS, and till things change, I might be leery of the unknown or future enterprise risk-taking. So, you asked me to inform you greater? There you’ve got it. Am I the simplest man or woman on this whole u? S. A. Does that get it? What the hell are they doing?
The Small Business Administration director hasn’t a clue. My god, this dog, and pony show never stop, WTH is going on. And the media hasn’t helped, what small businesses are supposed to go pay an attorney and accountant to tell them the new law changes? Sure, pay the professional parasites to tell you about the “new rules” I mean, do these legislators (all lawyers) even hear themselves think? And as the economy expands and gets back to normal, which jobs come back first? Legal jobs of course, what a totally screwed up system.
So, the business people have to pay lawyers, accountants just to prepare for the law changes, scared out of their wits they might make a mistake and the big bad government is going to find them, jail them, put them out of business? How do I know this is how it goes? Because I set up 187 franchises serving some 450 cities, I know exactly how small business works and how business people think. Meanwhile, we have a perceived “small business hater” president who never explained the comments about his “joe the plumber” gaf, and although it was blown out of proportion.
That indeed, was a definite psychological hit to small business, one we still haven’t gotten over and we must to ensure small business confidence, if we truly want those jobs – I am beginning to think they don’t by the actions of the Obama Administration, but don’t doesn’t understand and Obama’s PR team there is unfortunately too “unwise” to understand, so they laugh it off, and ramrod some BS health care legislation with a 2800 page health care bill, and then Pelosi is on prime time TV and says; “Well, you’ll just have to vote for it to see what’s in the bill.” Do you have to be kidding me?
Why should small businesses have to contact a lawyer to explain the health care rules? And may I ask with what money are they supposed to pay the $2,000 bill to set it up properly so they don’t get fined? Small businesses have been battling this recession for 35-months now, they are barely hanging on. If you own a small business and “Need the Money” well, get in line, every small business does and there is nowhere to borrow it. No one, I included, or any bank would be foolish enough to take the risk to lend money now. And no one knows what this Administration or Congress is going to do next?
They are unpredictable, perceived unstoppable, and willing to shove any 4,000-page bill down America’s throats. And don’t you dare argue with me, next could be Cap and Trade, and energy costs will skyrocket and you’ll be stuck in a business watching your energy costs go up 45%! How about that? Then you can expect shortages and mandatory “Energy Ultra-Efficient” equipment which will be required, above your already efficient units, air-conditioning system, solar panels, computers, along with new lighting, above and beyond what you have.
If you don’t you will be fined or shut down. If you cannot or do not want the presence of an attorney one will be appointed, if you want to stay in business the SBA will give you loans, GREAT borrow more money, as they destroy your business, go into more debt, is their answer, interesting, that’s the problem in the first place, the government is broke, now they want all the businesses to be as broke as they are and pay for all their mistakes in higher costs, taxes, fines, and fees. Enough already!
And if you think I am blowing smoke, it could easily happen in the next six to 18-months, and I wouldn’t put anything past this Administration or Congress, they are absolutely out of control. Do you think that if your energy costs tripled in your business you could keep your prices at the current level? Of course not, and if you double your prices, 30% of your customers will not come back, and the others will come less often, easily taking at the hit of 40-50% in revenues? Well, think it can’t happen?
It did in CA when the government imposed rules, raised energy costs, had shortages then blackouts, and it happened twice one decade apart. Now tack on health care costs for employees, yourself – mandatory let’s say, because I don’t know, no one does yet, can you then really make money> NO, NO YOU CAN’T. And so you work harder, lay off your employees who stop shopping – no money – and other businesses suffer because unemployment is so high. See what’s happening? Where we are headed?
You want me to tell you more? Sure, I could go on for 48-hours straight, with examples in the real world of what happens when government gets a stick up their rear-ends into what is supposed to be a free-market economy like the USA. End of rant, end of the article.
