Ariz. (June 2, 2009) – Owning and operating a successful business remains a
vital part of the American dream. While many owners and entrepreneurs may be
experts in their chosen fields, few have all the answers – but the small

problem loans during his tenure, giving him a unique insight into dealing with
many of the difficulties business owners currently face.
