From the smallest of chain link fence repairs to removing and replacing fence posts, no project is too small for John Willman of Fix-A-Fence LLC.
John first connected with his local Oregon SBDC Center at Clackamas Community College to take the Construction Contractor Board (CCB) test preparation program in 2009 and has participated in several training events and business counseling services since.
“I have never stopped talking about the stuff that I have learned from you all at SBDC. I am constantly talking about what my business counselor taught me, from where the business cards go to what type of boss I want to be,” John said.
When he first established the business, he had just a few tools and a truck. Now, he says, there are more tools and another truck!
As a testament to his hard work to build a successful business, Fix-A-Fence received Google’s “Best Fence Contractor in Portland” award for three years in a row, most recently in 2021.
