Client Testimonials

Blue Sky Farms, Hastings

Cheryl [Florida SBDC consultant] was very helpful in securing Covid disaster loans this year, as well as helping in the process to refinance my farm through Farm Credit, which helped me navigate an extreme cash flow crunch. She has also been a great resource in training my new office manager and sharing her business expertise.

Daniel Johns

CrossFit BearCat LLC, Bunnell

Michael [Florida SBDC consultant] was an integral part of how we were able to put a business model together, project future expense/revenue, and obtain a loan from a local community bank. He was available for questions, provided guidance on the next steps after the loan was secured, and remained accessible by phone, email, and in-person. His "can do" personality and energy were infectious and wonderful to work with!! We need more of Michael Oppenheim's in this city to help grow business and/or keep them in business! Thank YOU, Michael, for everything - we are one of a few small businesses making it in these tough times of the pandemic.
