Flauteria Los Borrachos,LLC

I am so grateful to have WESST in my life. Being an entrepreneur can feel lonely and knowing I can call WESST and get assistance is comforting. I am physically tired now, more than before, but I feel better mentally. I love waking up and knowing I have my business, that people are loving my food, working with my husband, and having people who can help me, that I am not alone in this journey.

Buell’s Fish  Hooks

Working weekly with Dawn, my business advisor, has helped me to understand better my role as a small business owner and the tasks that I would need to know to be successful. Everything provided to me has been invaluable; each week I had a task to complete. This helped me stay motivated and engaged in opening my business. I feel confident and know that what I have learned on this journey has prepared me for the hard days ahead.

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!
