Without the help of WESST, I would still lack the confidence around running my business and what is required. Consulting has helped give me a clear and accurate direction, demystified things I was afraid of doing, and confirmed that what I’m doing has value and purpose. Each meeting was packed with thoughtful questions from my mentor, which allowed me to reflect upon my path more effectively and get clear on exactly where I’m going. I’m so immensely grateful!

If I hadn’t obtained that loan and the technical skills from WESST, my business would not have grown.

To know that if we have a question about anything and have someone to call or email at any time, is positive reinforcement to continue with our stay at WESST.

I give full credit to Bette Bradbury for helping me make the transition from being an actress in show business and having agents and managers do all the business side of life to learning how to create and manage a viable business

Brad is always available whenever I have questions or concerns. He often brings up issues that perhaps I haven’t thought about, which makes me more comfortable knowing that I have a true resource that’s always willing to help out when needed.

WESST was instrumental in helping us get through all the obstacles of starting a business and getting our marketing messaging focused and effective. They helped us make Catopia a reality from our initial idea. My meetings and consultations helped keep us mentally sane in the wake of so many decisions needing to be made all at once
