Management Solutions’ President and Founder Misty Mayes was one of only 100 small business owners selected to meet with President Trump yesterday (August 1) for a discussion on “American Small Business – The Engine of the American Dream” at the White House. Following the meeting with the President, Mayes and the other business leaders participated in a 45-minute Q&A session led by Ivanka Trump and SBA administrator Linda McMahon.
“It was just such a huge honor and privilege to be within 5 or 6 feet from the President of the United States inside the White House,” Misty said. “It was such a privilege to represent Management Solutions and the great state of Tennessee.”
Misty said the president thanked the small businesses for helping lower the unemployment rate, and he also talked about making it easier for small business owners to acquire capital.
"It was great to hear him say and hear SBA Director McMahon say we're going to alleviate those roadblocks. We're going to simplify the process," Misty said.
