“Working with the SBDC in Wasilla has been an enjoyable and invaluable learning experience. Julie Nolen has been a tremendous support and assisted us with so many things that we were very unfamiliar with as new business owners (how to advertise, how to register the business, how to obtain business license, how to work with QuickBooks, and the list goes on!).

We can’t be thankful enough. Running your own business certainly requires a wide range of skills. Ms. Nolen goes the extra mile, she constantly ‘checks in’ and makes herself available for questions. We are very fortunate to have this type of quality, commitment, and knowledge available to our local business community.” – Ruth Adolph, co-owner of Knik Tire & Auto

Impact of working with SBDC: Successful purchase of existing business, $435,000 owner investment, $400,000 Approved Non SBA Loan.
