Testimonials

"I was referred by a business owner and as a new business owner, I wish I had this experience 12 months ago when I started. So, I am so grateful. I feel like other business owners new and old can use any of the tips and tools shared in this session. There is a wealth of information that was well presented."

"This webinar was extremely useful for me as I plan to open my own business in the next 4-6 weeks. Thank you SBDC for providing this information in a clear, concise, applicable manner!"
