Plain and simple, without the Florida SBDC, I would not be where I am today, living my dream of owning and operating my own small business. The Florida SBDC is an invaluable service to all wannabe small business owners!

The Florida SBDC has been a guiding light through all of this. Ray took us by the hand and showed us the way. He led us through the whole business building process. Creating the business plan, the financial plan, from billing to insurance to marketing, he helped us with everything. The Florida SBDC’s resources are amazing.
