Hundreds of small business owners gathered in Lincoln Thursday to hear Administrator Linda McMahon of the U.S. Small Business Administration.

"This is a terrific time for small businesses in our country," said Administrator Linda McMahon.

McMahon stressed the importance of small businesses in Nebraska and praised the state for its workforce. Over 99 per cent of businesses in Nebraska are local and employ 407 thousand people. That’s nearly half of the state's workforce.

"As President Trump likes to say, 'small business in this country is big business, because there's 30 million of them,'" said McMahon.

As part of her job, McMahon works to ensure the nearly 30 million small businesses in the U.S. are able to prosper.

The speech Thursday was encouraging for locals.

"I'm really excited that they want to cut regulations, make it easier for small businesses,” said Janell Anderson Ehrke of GROW Nebraska. “The tax cuts obviously as a small business owner we all love having a lot great services, but any time we can save money that can be a real win."

The SBA assists by providing loans and grants to small businesses to help them grow, as well as provide advice for their futures.

McMahon visited Elliott Equipment Company in Omaha to tour their facilities and see the success of a small business in our state.
