Testimonials

 

Having never run a business of this scale before, Sorensen appreciated how the Business Development Specialists at the Western Wisconsin Women's Business Center walked her through every step. Specifically, in terms of finances, they assisted her in getting set up with QuickBooks, which she notes has been a great help. As well, she emphasized that they have been able to address her concerns by helping her work through challenges progressively, in a chronological way. She mentions, “The Business Development Specialists have been absolutely wonderful to work with and have been helpful in pointing me in the right direction.”

– Penny Sorensen, Owner of American Phoenix Transportation
