Sunni began her entrepreneurial journey in April of 2021 and came to the WESST Farmington Women’s Business Center seeking assistance in starting her business. Sunni was overwhelmed and not sure what she needed to do first. After her first initial consultation, she decided she wanted to work on her business plan. While working on her business plan, she registered for the DreamBuilder training program at WESST to help her develop a comprehensive plan. She also received assistance in marketing and branding strategies, and building her cash flow projections with the anticipation of preparing her for WESST loan packaging in 2022.
