Welcome to the
National Business Association

We Serve the Self-Employed

The National Business Association established in 1982 

Provides Members with support programs, cost, and time saving products, services and valuable Small Business resource materials in the areas of Business, Lifestyle, Education, and Health.

The National Business Association developed the First Step Review to help meet the informational needs of existing business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs.

The FIRST STEP SOFTWARE SERIES was developed by the NBA in 1989 by R. Jerry Adams, PHD, with a Co-Sponsorship Agreement* with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and assistance from the SBA’s Small Business Development Centers.  The First Step Review was updated in 1998 with the assistance of the Small Business Advancement National Center.  The Review was again updated in 2006 and again in 2021.  Each piece in the series was written to conform to SBA specifications and designed to make the loan process easy to understand.
