“We’ve had the privilege of working with our SBDC business coach, Susannah Higgins, from the beginning of the business planning process. She has been a tremendous source of knowledge and encouragement, helping us to find funding, making sure we had a solid business plan, and answering any questions we’ve had as first-time business owners. 

“She urged us to keep going whenever we encountered hurdles that seemed impossible to overcome, because she believed in our business model and would remind us of how far we had already come. While her services were free to us, she worked as if we were paying her to assist us.

“She was consistent, unwavering, and dedicated to bringing our vision to life. We wouldn’t be where we are right now without her assistance and persistence. We are thankful for Susannah and for the resources the SBDC provides for small business owners like us!” — Lacy Ramsey, Manager, JesterLine
