Client Testimonials

Germaine Simonson, Rocky Ridge Gas and Market

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.

Kurt Pablo

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.

Kate Viers

WESST has been an incredible asset to the continued growth of my business. There were so many pieces of being a small business owner that I didn't see or understand, and WESST has really helped me to feel confident in areas of business management that I wasn't before. My business consultant, Neema Pickett is a wealth of knowledge and inspiration, and her guidance has been instrumental for me in keeping myself on track, focused and always growing. Her assistance has taken my business to the next level.

I’ve had the opportunity to meet and work with Brad in Rio Rancho. He’s been great! He is dedicated, informative, and most important, always encouraging. He’s a very open-minded individual and is extremely knowledgeable about running a business here in New Mexico. Once I met Brad, I knew he would be able to fill in all the missing links of my situation.

The WESST organization has been phenomenal. It’s been such a pleasure working with Brad and learning from his expertise. From credentialing to business plan development, and pricing to social media assistance, he has helped me successfully launch and grow the Phree project to what it is today.

Maman Atelier

I take inspiration from Maya Angelou when she says, “Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. WESST has been a great source of information and support and has helped me grow a better business.

Michelle Clemishire

WESST has been the catalyst for starting our new business. Holly has given us so much helpful information and connected us with all the right people. Without her and WESST, we would still be swimming in loads of information without clear direction. Thank you WESST and Holly!
