  On the Dec. 13, 2018 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I talk with Julie Clowes, San Francisco District Director of the Small Buiness Administration about what wannabe and extant small businesses can get from the SBA: training, money, etc.

Work with Marty Nemko is heard every Thursday from 7 to 8 PM on KALW 91.7 FM in San Francisco and worldwide on KALW.org.
