Jodi was extremely responsive to [the Covid-19 Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan] application processing, clarifications, general questions, and communication about loan processing. I filed our first loan on a Friday afternoon and figured, at best, I would hear something on Monday. No, first thing Saturday morning, she let me know she had received the application and it was being reviewed. I was blown away and she continued to provide timely and accurate updates throughout the entire process. She is an angel!Lisa West

When I received the email from the Florida SBDC letting me know that business continuity consultation was available, I was at the point where I was seriously considering closing and declaring bankruptcy, but I decided to ask for help. The process that I have been brought through as a client has allowed me to step back and take a more objective view. I have developed possible scenarios and prepared cash flow projections for each. It has helped me to identify what needs to be done to be able to continue in business.Cynthia Olson
