My Experience With A SBA Loan
I graduated from chiropractic school in 1996, ending three years of the most difficult education experience of my life. I graduated in September of that year, but had to waith until December before then national boards would be offered again. That gave me a few months to study and prepare for what was to come: getting my first professional job! Prior to graduating I had sent letters, made phone calls and otherwise contacted several chiropractors around Utah looking for a job. That spring before I graduated I finally got an offer in Hurricane, Utah. Hurricane is a small town, just outside St. George. I researched the area, went for a visit, met my new employer and fell in love.
I remember exactly how and when it happened. Between my graduation and starting this job would be several months as I mentioned so I kept both the jobs I had. One was working for a valet service and the other was delivering the New York Times. Delivering the New York Times was done in the early morning about 2:00AM, so I was in the habit of going to bed early. Well the phone rang about 11:00 PM on New Years day, the doctor who had offered me a job backed out. At this point I'm three weeks from moving. We're moving out of our apartment, I've quit my jobs - we're moving.
I did a lot of scrambling but in those three weeks. I found a chiropractic office in Pleasant Grove that would allow me to rent space. More scrambling and we found a new place to live.
When we got to Utah in February of 1997 we were referred to a local bank. I met with with their SBA Loans officer and started the process to get funding.
I can't say it's been a smooth, but my career, the way it all started, and getting my SBA loan provided me learning experiences for the rest of my life.
