Client Testimonials

Simply Smiles, P.A., Port Charlotte

Suzanne Specht [Florida SBDC consultant] was so helpful in not only consulting with how to apply for my [COVID-19 Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge] loan, but she also helped relieve a lot of anxiety and stress during a VERY stressful time. I was relocating my dental practice to a new larger location just as the shutdown for the COVID-19 pandemic happened. I didn't know how my business would survive. She was a godsend.

Peter [Florida SBDC consultant] was professional and efficient when consulting with us regarding the options for relief during the COVID-19 pandemic. Peter guided us in all the right directions and was there to check-in after to make sure everything went smoothly.
