I rave about WESST, I am very proud to be a part of such an amazing organization. I always try to recommend their services to other business owners I know. They provide so many valuable resources and their office is a safe place without judgement to understand how to run your small business. The communication with Dave and Sara is nice and genuine. I don’t think I would have been as successful as I have been this year without all the help that I received from WESST. I feel like I can reach out to Sara or Dave at any time, and they respond almost immediately to assist me.

I’ve been able to grow a successful business while being a new mom. WESST has helped me learn and develop with the resources they’ve shared and the advice they’ve provided. I am grateful that they’ve also recommended my services to others.

Reflecting on the services and workshops I received from WESST starting 11 years ago, I feel truly uplifted and supported. They helped me lay the groundwork for my dream, instilled belief in my vision and WESST has been by my side through each season of growth and transformation. I still have strong relationships and connections with fellow entrepreneurs and service providers that I met through WESST. I tell every budding entrepreneur to start at WESST. I am impressed that they continue to expand their offerings based on the needs of their clients and how businesses are expected to operate in this day and age.

WESST has been able to help me to think about my business in varied ways. New ways to organize products and services to increase profit streams. To restructure and repackage my brand with a new and refreshed perspective. Also, the accountability given through consulting makes me do my homework!

Being an entrepreneur is worth the work. It’s different working for someone else. I can control things. We make the decisions; we are in a position of strength. We are the ones making the decisions bad or good and we can live with it. What we bring to the community young and old is an opportunity to give them possibility…there is no such thing as success, life is a journey. You may not know that you’re helping someone else when you are. I thought I was giving someone a service, but it turns out they help you and you help them, it’s reciprocal.

WESST has given me the knowledge to help me grow my startup business! The WESST Farmington and Roswell offices are great. Thank you, Dawn and Holly, for your one-on-one help. My business is almost two years old.

Franziska Neumann, Santa Fe, NM
WESST has been great, the opportunities to learn and speak to the clients of WESST was inspiring to me and helped me to feel secure in my journey of entrepreneurship. Having a consultant there during my business planning phase was incredibly helpful, I was much clearer in my goals and vision after revising my business plan. The ultimate piece of knowledge WESST taught me was that my business will always change, its ultimately up to me to keep my goal in sight.

Holly and Mr. Austin were so helpful in a time that felt like the end of the road. I am very grateful for all the support and guidance provided to me to resolve this concern with a manageable result. When my store and gas station closed, many locals were out of transportation and food. I want to continue to provide for my community; however, this was a barrier to continuing to operate my business. Thank you to Mr. Austin and Holly from WESST for providing this service for me through their CARES Funding.

I am a new start-up business and reached out for help elsewhere. WESST was nice and helpful and had my best interest in mind rather than the organization. WESST quickly listened to my request for assistance and planned on how they could help. So far, it’s been a great experience, and I will recommend other small business owners to WESST and their resources.
