“Working with Mike and the SBDC has made a significant impact on our immediate success and future. Mike has been one of the greatest role models and mentors. He’s been there for us whenever we needed him, he’s the first one to applaud and recognize us when things go great, and he’s the first one to help us problem-solve when things weren’t going so well.”
