Becoming involved in the SBA has been the best business development investment I've ever made.
In 2008 I opened my studio in Schaumburg. There is a lot to learn being a business owner and no matter your experience, level of knowledge, quality of product, or ability to to sell, no one is able to do it alone. It all takes a village. In those first days I considered carefully how I would find my trusted advisors, mentors, and fellow entrepreneurs. All I had was the thought I needed help from my community. From the first event I attended after becoming a member of the SBA I knew I had found my tribe. 15 years of membership later the Schaumburg Business Association continues to support me and the studio. In-fact during last year we had what I’d consider the 100 year storm and the studio was hit hard. Lisa, having no idea we were having a difficult time called to inform us of an Illinois grant opportunity. After reviewing the grant details I could not imagine my small business being important enough or deserving of such an opportunity. Lisa, not only encouraged me but actually guided me through the process. We were awarded the grant in October. I’m truly inspired by the creative, compassionate and hard working staff and eternally grateful to them and all of the SBA members.
