Through the classes SBDC has provided I have the necessary skills required to run a business. I thank SBDC for their support.
I was given the confidence to ask for help from the right kinds of people.
I am lucky to have the opportunity to work with Jeff Nelson from the Blue Mountain SBDC, who quickly guided me in the right direction. SBDC’s continued guidance, positive attitude, and motivation have been a great support to my success. Thank you SBDC as I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you Jeff Nelson, for being so approachable and believing in my dream of building a successful business.
I was hoping for the financial knowledge, and I got so much more out of it. The course covered all the basis of owning and operating a small business from systems implementation, marketing, management of employees and the financial piece I was originally looking for.
So many of the basic skills you believe you should come into a business with I did not have, like basic accounting and marketing. I learned those things during those monthly SBDC classes.
I heartily recommend OSBDCN services to all small business owners who want to make their business as effective as possible. No matter where a business is in its development, the SBDC has a service, a class, or a network to offer knowledge, suggestions, or alternatives for an optimum result.
The SBDC has been an awesome resource for me and my business.
If you just need to bounce an idea off of someone who’s been in the industry and has experience in the area of what you want to do, it’s just good to go talk with (SBDC) and see if they can help make it more simple.
The SBDC is going to help me grow. It already has in many ways.
Seeing the SBDC made the reality of opening our salon happen.
