“People starting a business don’t always know all that they will need,” said Michael Dechand, founder of True Blue Roofing & Siding in May 2020. Washington SBDC business advisor Taryn Hornby “was so helpful to start. You need to get licenses, be registered with certain agencies, get certifications. More information is always good, and talking with someone like Taryn helps you know what you need and how to achieve it.”
