SBDC has a professional and customer-oriented program which systematically consults with a new business owner to elicit new skills, insights, products and confidence. Working with Blake allowed me to move successfully into the competitive non-profit sector with a well-polished plan and product. Having been out of the work force for over 12 years while raising my four children, I was hesitant, but Blake’s coaching inspired confidence, skills and success!

I was referred to the SBDC during the time I was toying with the idea of expanding. Getting an appointment and an actual sit down with a consultant was very expedient.
