Director, Blue Mountain SBDC
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 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.
Since the infancy of BGood Bars, we have seen our sales double annually. Rick Bombaci with the SBDC has provided important help with marketing and running a small business. He has great ideas, and has done additional research for me on marketing, trademark and patent information for my product.
My lifelong dream came true because of the SBDC’s help and support.
Through the classes SBDC has provided I have the necessary skills required to run a business. I thank SBDC for their support.
