Clients credit the Sonora Microenterprise program with being an integral part of their success.
Discovering the Sonora Micro-Enterprise programs and SBDC consultants were literally a game changer for me. I walked in looking for help with a couple of business ideas I was trying to keep afloat. I walked out with not only a new business idea that could replace all the piecemeal things I was doing and give me focus and great joy, but also connections to a variety of resources to help me launch the business.
The SBDC team has coached and inspired me every step of the way, from concept and licensing through developing a business plan, marketing strategy and tools, website and social media outreach efforts. While I have been the one on the ground doing the literal and figurative footwork, I am certain I could not have put together all these pieces and moved so effectively through the new business process without the support of the SBDC and Sonora Micro-Enterprise program. They have been a resource to bounce ideas and questions of off as well as cheerleaders and encouragement when I wasn’t sure I could pull this off! My business is up and running, thanks to the SBDC team.
My husband and I are truly grateful for the Sonora Micro-Enterprise-SBDC Program!! This program has provided services to assist us in our new growing business that we, otherwise, would not have been able to obtain due to “New Business” financial constraints! We can’t say enough about all the wonderful and knowledgeable SBDC Consultants we’ve had the pleasure of working with, and have referred 3 other business associates to check into this super beneficial program! Thank you to all the organizers, directors, consultants, and networking associates for making SBDC Services available! You’ve helped us make our business possible!!
The SBDC consultants helped me achieve business success. After hours of consulting on business plans, marketing plans, position statements, body language, financial projections, QuickBooks and Business Building Blocks courses, I have gained essential knowledge of how to operate in the business world. I use that knowledge every day in my business, whether it is regular evaluation and updating of my business and marketing strategies, or by keeping records of every transaction, project and past projects to keep track of the business successes and failures. Going forward, I feel much more confident as a business owner, and know that if I need further help, the SBDC will be there as a continued resource. Honestly, I couldn’t have done it without their coaching and guidance.
