There was a demand for upholstery services in my area. October 9, 1991 I was selected to travel to Washington DC and testify to a Congressional Committee. My intent was to explain to the committee that regulations at that time was preventing me from acquiring the tools I needed to start a business. Counting the value of assets (tools) for micro enterprise as a personal asset would exceed the income guidelines, exempting my son from being insured by Medicaid, that was not an option.
