“I Know Your Pain” | “Been There, Done That”
Welcome. I’m Valerie Miller, founder of the 8aNetwork.

Based on my own company experience in 2005, after my first narrative attempt failed, I spent 2 weeks researching and successfully re-submitted my narrative. My company, Design2Train, a woman-owned company was officially SBA 8(a) certified.  

YES! I had cracked the narrative writing code. Since 2005, I have personally helped hundreds of business owners nationwide to successfully prepare their social narratives. We now offer an affordable DWY option to give you the training and ready-to-fill narrative template to get your Social Narrative completed quickly, even if you are not a good writer. 

SBA 8(a) Social Narrative Preparation
Done-With-You (DWY) Program

The Social Narrative is a critical component of the SBA 8(a) application. As stated in the SBA website, they define the narrative statement provides “specific claims, incidents of bias, or discriminatory conduct directed towards you“. 

Most believe this narrative is often the most difficult section in the entire application. Don’t take the Social Narrative lightly, while the SBA does give some general advice, they are very picky in the review of the evidence that you provide. 

Confidently prepare your narrative in a day or less, even if you are not a good writer. Your 8a Network subscription includes a ready-to-fill narrative template along with complete step-by-step training tips, to complete at your own pace. Get started NOW! 
Note: Narratives may fulfill your State DOT requirement

“Ms. Miller’s experience in this field enabled her to take my rambling and massive amounts of information and hone it down to the most critical and effective.

She guided me through writing a cohesive and articulate narrative that persuaded the reviewer to acknowledge the discrimination and obstacles I’d faced.”

“Since receiving our 8a status we were able to substantially grow our business by using it as a tool, but its accompanied by hard work and dedication to your company to grow your brand. 

With the help of Ms. Miller’s exquisite writing abilities we were able to receive our 8a status when previously being denied she is truly a professional in her field. “
