“As a business, you can plug away and keep doing what you’re doing, or you can look at how to impact the community and give back.”

- Sue Sabari,
co-owner of Nate Sabari Woodworks

I would highly recommend the SBDC to anyone who is thinking of starting or is operating a small business.

– Ben Garrett, Inland Elevator

“Vern has been a wonderful sounding board—a very knowledgeable sounding board.”
