Dean of Extended Learning and SBDC
So many of the basic skills you believe you should come into a business with I did not have, like basic accounting and marketing. I learned those things during those monthly SBDC classes.
They’ve just always been there to help me with any questions I had, or if they couldn’t answer my question they would get me in touch with the people that could.
Whenever I had an idea and brought it to (my adviser) he would tell me how I could do it. He wouldn’t do it for me but he would give me options. He was like a guidance counselor
A lot of what has been helpful is (my adviser) confirming that what I’m doing is right. I’ve taken myself out of the job in the business and working on it is the best thing I could have done. But I needed to hear from a professional that I was doing the right thing.
The classes led me to getting hooked up with an adviser, who told me about this loan program and helped me with my application. Having (his) help guiding me through that loan process was really great.
