I rely on SBDC for Guidance

“I truly wish I was aware of SBDC when I started my skincare line 5 years ago. It would have saved me thousands of dollars. They helped me create a free website and blog, guided me with how to market things, do a press release, hire staff, and how to pay them with the correct employee taxes. I relied on the SBDC for guidance. They helped me figure out Quickbooks, creating a FREE website, saving me money I did not have at the start-up. I feel more confident in my bookkeeping, and since this is a farmer’s market with internal and additional currencies, it helped me figure out how to account for my expenses and deposits in a manner that is trackable, accountable and easy to manage. Their encouragement and support have been wonderful as well.” – Prescott Valley Farmer’s Market: Hedda Fay


SBDC was instrumental

“The SBDC was instrumental at the outset by offering guidance in the development of a business plan. Mike Seibert provided us with practical examples of plans and helped us “tweak” them to suit our specific structure and goals. Following discussions with him, we were able to identify our ideal “target” customers and their priorities.” – Granite Mountain Stables: Jacque Gorman. Ed Sierman, Cameraon Macbeth
