“I wanted to just take a moment to say hello and say I’m one of your success stories:). After taking Entrepreneurial Mindset in 2021, I officially got my Veteran business licensed in June 2021 and I’ve figured out my niche. I’ve been super successful with being able to help Veteran clients and last month I got certified as a Disabled Veteran Owned Business! I have a few areas that I need to figure out, but it’s has been an amazing journey and I still often recall some of the valuable tools you taught us.”
“I started working with Rebecca in 2018 when I took the ELEVATIONLAB NEWVENTURE course that she taught. I learned so much and really took to heart her advice. She would say, “Why don’t you have any customers?! Because you haven’t gone and TALKED to the people!” From there, she became my SBDC advisor and has helped me over the last four years with key questions and challenges I’ve faced in my business. We worked very closely together while I was a member of the 2022 ScaleUp! cohort and I could not have been successful without all her wisdom and guidance. I am so thankful for the SBDC, ELEVATIONLAB trainings and the team of facilitators and counselors!”
