Before I leave the office today, I thought I'd take a minute to wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving. Y...

For the past several months, I've been following U.S. Senator Olympia Snowe's attempt to help struggling small businesses through the implementation of the ARC Loan Program - - a stimulus-package incentive she helped to create, no less. You'll recall that this “America's Recovery Capital” loan pr...

As a regular reader of all-things-Mercantile, you've probably noticed I've been busy putting forth countless ideas to help America's small businesses grow better, smarter, and faster. I've been advocating for the most important employer in our economy for several years (the small business owner),...

If you've read this blog for any length of time, you know that MCC is still lending. We've continued to provide financing for owner-occupied commercial property (our specialty) while other lenders have been pulling back and hunkering down.

November 11th, 2009 | 04:12 pm We are still facing some pretty tough times, economically speaking. Some days it seems like it will never end - - that we'll never hear some genuinely "good news" on the TV or the radio. But let's think about things a little differently today.

It's Friday and the end of another long workweek is upon us. To end it on a good note - - and start the weekend right - - my staff and I have thrown together some of the outtakes and deleted scenes we had left over from the filming of The MCC Office.

If the French Can Do It, Surely We Can Too! (more on that in a minute) Last night, my wife and I took our two young children - - ages 6 and 8 - - to our “part-time” church (since we spread our visits among three) to hear TV star and faith-filled survivalist, Bear Grylls, speak about his adventure...
