Kate Middleton and Prince William made the Guinness Storehouse one of the stops on their royal trip to Ireland. And, for the second time, she opted for a verdant green dress for the occasion.
Francis: I've owned a small business I co-founded since 1991. It took at least 5 hours on the phone with multiple SBA and bank reps. All of which were just figuring this new program out as they spoke to us. I applied for one through SBA (Covid Economic Relief) and the Payroll Protection Program required I deal with my own bank. Which is Bank of America. Good luck Charlie. That's where most of the 5 hours getting passed around took place. I did not have a biz online banking set up (we use online but didn't have it set up for biz account) so that was set up ... not easy but we did it. Since the loan if approved, get direct deposited. At the end of it all we got rejected for not having a pending biz line of credit or open loan. since BoA was giving priority to businesses that had open loans. I complained to several SVPs at BoA and called them out on Linkedin and the next morning the pending loan requirement was removed. My application went through after 24 hours of finagling and another 2-3 days of reading the instructions/procedures prior.
