Do this actor thank you in our Co host Laura Collins, once again. Welcome back, Laura. She's the director in the Bush. Institute smu Economic Growth Initiative thank you. Thank Santa I. Only wake up early for this I know we. To Peel back the curtain we're here at about seven thirty in the morning in Dallas and Lauren I were comparing notes and turns out that one of us are morning. People so hector. We're looking. We're looking at you. Demand on. West Coast time. It's like five thirty in your body clock Oh. That's rough. Hector's here for our SME Economic Growth Advisory Council where he is one of them. Is that help guide the policy work that we do at the Bush Institute, because both of his expertise is the forty first administrator, the small business, and because his work with the Latino Coalition. Let's start with the former when you were with the small business administration. What was the goal of that department? What were you? You, all working on the small business. Administration was actually started in one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, three by President Eisenhower and there were some small business programs before that, but they unified those all into one agency, and it's really the agency that supports and advocates for America's small businesses, and that role has become even more important over the years when they formed the SBA. There probably weren't thinking that was going to be over thirty million small businesses in the united. United States and I like to say nothing small about small business. They really are the engine of America, the engine that fuels the economy of America not only are there a lot of them, but they represent over fifty two percent of the gross output of the economy. It's the place that two-thirds the net new jobs of our economy comes from, and it's also the place that a lot of our innovation comes from. That makes us the envy of the world. World in terms of our economy so very very important agency. A lot of people have heard of it, but they oftentimes don't know everything it does. Where does your passion for Small Business? Come from a well? That's easy. I was fortunate to be born into an entrepreneurial family, so the first business owners I ever met where my mother and father and my father was especially a serial entrepreneur. He loved business. He loves starting businesses. I'm not saying he loved running. My mother ran the business ideas, man yeah, but I learned a lot about a small business I used to joke that everything I learned about business. I learned in a Mexican restaurant because that's why I worked when I was a little kid. What jobs is you? Hold with your parents Oh, a lot of them, you know we were an immigrant family and. There was five children. My mother had five children six years. I have four younger sisters, and so we were all recruited to my father's executive training program very early on, so we all had to work I remember waiting tables when I was nine years old. So And then I. as I got older, I got more responsibility and help run some of those businesses and start some of those businesses, and my father had a number of different businesses. We started off with the restaurant business, because that's an easy business to access, but then later on at a little import export business, a little construction business, none of those businesses wherever really large, but they were very important to our family helps support us. They helped educate, and we learned a lot about being in business and working with the community and customers, and so your father came to America start these businesses. He actually didn't. My father was an immigrant to the United States in the late nineteen fifties. I don't think he was planning on staying that long. But he met my mother. My mother is also from immigrant parents from Mexico they've shown love, and and of all places they started their journey in Kansas City Missouri that's where I was born. I grew up in Kansas City Missouri and my father. He had a lot of different jobs as a lot of immigrants do when they first get here. His first jobs were picking. Picking potatoes for fifty cents an hour in rural Missouri and later on, he worked at a railroad, a literally pounding the spikes into the ground, but in the winter it got too cold, so he moved into He started working in the livestock business, and it was very difficult. dirty work. He was cleaning out stalls, but at least it was warmer than being outside. When he was working at the railroad later on he, he was a janitor at the school that I would eventually go to, but my father used to always say that he was a business owner, and I would say dad. You have these jobs. You're not a business owners. They know what I have to do right now, but eventually alone my own business, so he was very passionate about that. He always wanted to work for himself, so he starts so then he starts these businesses and his career trajectory starts trending too so far up that start happening. Yeah, my father was a very visionary leader very. Very charismatic you know he when he's grown up used to say know. I came here with nothing I didn't know anybody. I didn't speak the language. I had no money I had no power, but I believed in myself I was willing to work hard, and this is such a great country that affords us the opportunity to go as far as we WANNA go. We're only limited by our own imagination our own commitment, so he he's. We started these businesses, but later on my father was kind of an organizer as well, and he wanted to belong to the Chamber of Commerce. This is in Kansas City. Number of others spanning businesses. There were there at the time, and my father started asking. Where's the Hispanic Chamber? And they said well. There isn't an Hispanic Chamber. My Dad said well there should be, and if nobody else is going to start it, I will so my father was one of the founders of the Kansas City Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, that was in the mid seventies,

"Spanish chamber. Of course, we wouldn't be here today without the leadership like yours and others who've been so instrumental in getting to this point today. I simply right on those coattails in many ways, but in terms of the activities in Washington, we have a deep deep interest in what's happening, certainly in Washington. D C today in great part. We have deep experience in regards to that. Because we spent so much time out there. And of course, as you know in my own background. I spent over twelve years in Washington DC on Capitol Hill in one way or another and and certainly as as a past chairman of the United States, Hispanic chamber of commerce. They're working with the administration's that have come and gone as well the Senate the US house of representatives. And of course, the fortune one hundred fortune five hundred corporate American leaders who have great interest in the high growth is panic market. So we in this case now with what's happened with the government shutdown and things we're. Watching very carefully, and of course, providing and have had an opportunity to provide input as it pertains to certain public policy decisions that will have to be made as this all navigates along in including the government shutdown. Wessel, your there's there's so much happening. We're going to get into that. But I want to just step back for a little bit. Because you've been on my show several times in my history here, and I think it was last month of Moore's most recently, but people that haven't heard you before I just want to just catch up a little bit for for those folks a little bit of your history. So they understand the dynamics of the talents that you bring to the table of the Hispanic chamber of commerce, and the leadership that you're provided here for this USO coalition, so just share with absolutely I come from a self employed background. I've been self employed my entire adult life. In fact, this is the first position I've ever held outside of self employment with the Spanish chamber, as you know. Back dating back to twenty twelve when I began my work there. But before that, certainly in financial services sector, national financial Corp is an information technology company that has existed for many years. I retired out of all that activity back in two thousand twelve and. In those prior years. I spent so many years many years in commute national community development, deeply involved with banking federal banking regulators on Capitol Hill the legislators as well Dodd Frank reform and so much more. So we're no stranger to activities in Capitol Hill, and as a result of that I may be able to bring that playbook to the Spanish chamber of commerce, Wisconsin. And then deeply engaged to the best interest of the Wisconsin economy in the best interest of the Wisconsin economy. And so there we are today. Absolutely will spread that through that pretty quickly. But with that organizations you used to head up a national financial. Was the name of the company, but in the kind of work that you provided in leadership as I recall, you were it was your organization that was giving the banks and the the if you will the federal government ideas of what they could do to help. Low to moderate income. Individuals national. You've got a great memory. And that's a great point or my specialty in that work was what's called the LMI low and monitoring come population and helping them achieve economic mobility upward economic mobility through what we call financial access. In fact, many many years ago, I served for many years on the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago advisory board, and we I actually coined a phrase that they now use today years later, it's still called financial access or financial access. But that is the area of expertise and focus that I've had throughout my community development career throughout my business career with federal regulators in Washington DC and across the board. We are we are deep in that space. And of course, doing some exciting things we'll be announcing and talking about in the perhaps in the weeks and months to come as it pertains to the Spanish chamber of commerce of Wisconsin. And the delivery of banking services. To this LMI low income segment that is such a large part of the state population. Absolutely. I want to step back for just a little second here because you know, what you've shared with us quite instrumental in what you've been able to accomplish in your lifetime in to help people as you mentioned Bank, accessibility to Bank products through the. Programs that you developed for national technology. With with that. I wanted to comment because you brought some of those skills were all those skills and talents. Also because you cheered the board of the national US Hispanic chamber of commerce US chamber of comers before you took the reins of the Hispanic coverage of Wisconsin. And it's right before coming back to Wisconsin to serve here, which I currently serve as chairman president and CEO of the statewide Hispanic chamber, but at the national level, it's an elected position, you're elected up along the way at least back, then it was and and that certainly takes it to another dimension the much more complex. I don't wanna diminish the work all the work that gets done here in Wisconsin public policy at the capitol at so many, but as a much greater deal of complexity I remember financial reform on Capitol Hill. What's now known as the Dodd Frank financial? Reform act and just had so much complexity, and it was really fascinating to navigate and work through. And we were very successful. In accomplishing certain things. For example. I was a fun supporter of something called federal preemption that helps lower the cost of banking services across multi state lines for large national banking service providers, and that's really vital because without that cost gets so high for the low and monitoring KOMO consumer that they end up getting pushed out of the banking system rather than brought into it, which was my focus. So just an example of of what the work involved in the complexity, and I it's just stuff I've loved for years and years and and continue to do it today. Well, you know, and to add to that that was instrumental also in helping people that are if you will non English speakers. Absolutely. We go. The country not only the state to access those those services those products because historically, I say that because I don't my parents were in that realm. They they were hard workers, but they had a hard time accessing Bank products, if you will I remember the struggles they had when they were trying to I buy their first home, you know, and even before whether it was furniture furniture store. Whatever. Not being able to navigate that with the skills that they have because of language barriers. And I think that you helped in the organizations you worked with in four or read I should say. You provided accessibility to people that had those barriers in front of them. That's a great point professional like your parents, my parents as well. I remember as I think about a twelve year old boy, I have to think back, and how old I would have been at that time. But I think it was around twelve years of age walking in with my mother into the Lincoln savings and loan to open their first Bank account to help interpret and translate the English language and Spanish language between my mother, and and the and the the person there at the savings and loan. So that's a really important point. That is so common that in a way and many people live today in order to gain financial access, but the bilingual for the English language learners as we call them. It's just also great opportunity in the in the banking sector for these high growth markets as well. Certainly he also so all of that. I I wanted to sort of bring that also the people listening understand the skill level the skills, and the things that you brought to the table now with this Hispanic chamber of commerce of Wisconsin in other leadership. Roles you serve on a number of other.
