Road Map to Reconsideration
We don’t blame the front line reps trying to manage the incoming mayhem. We blame management, leadership and Congress. Congress has failed to allocate ample funding to this vital organization who touts that small business is the “back bone of the economy”.
The small business owner is left in limbo without any guidance on how to navigate the system.
There are many SBA Loan Officers and Representatives that aren’t familiar with financial documents and are challenged with the volume of applications due to the ongoing COVID disaster.
We had high hopes that the SBA would’ve gotten their act together to do their job with advocating for the small business owner, however, with acts of fraud continuously looming, the fight against fraud seems to consume the SBA thereby making it more difficult to move through the process with ease and simplicity. It’s gotten almost worse than March, 2020.
We want you to minimize the anxiety of not understanding the tactics of the SBA especially since there is no formal training that we can detect nor written guidelines available to follow so you can ensure a smoother process.
For those on the fence (because of price):
- How much time have you spent calling, emailing, submitting documents, waiting, arguing, worrying, uncertain, confused?
- How badly do you need the loan?
- How much are you losing by waiting to only be declined again?
WHO should NOT buy this road map
- Those who think rushing the process will get you the money faster.
- Those who think there are shortcuts.
- Those who are too busy to slow down, read carefully and consider our suggestions.
- Those who didn’t file your 2019 taxes.
- Those who didn’t file their 2019 taxes or who filed in 2021 (or 2022) after already applying for the EIDL loan in 2020.

A. File another reconsideration. You’ll need to review every aspect of what you’ve submitted which is why it’s crucial to pay close attention to every detail. We provide guidance and insight per our direct experiences with the SBA, however, we cannot guarantee that every step you attempt and execute will result in an approval especially without our supervision and direct control over your file. If you get declined, resubmit your package as you prepared. Keep re-submitting until you get a competent loan officer to review your file.
