Podcast 25 – Business Disruption from COVID 19 & How to Break Through

This episode of #PoisedforExit features the Regional Director of the Small Business Development Center at the University of St Thomas, Diane Paterson. 

Diane's extensive business acumen included 13 years owning her business. She's been a small business advocate and instructor for many years, teaching entrepreneurs how to succeed by setting up well in the beginning, with the “Smart Start for Business” program, now offered online. 

She's advised and instructed business owners of all sizes, stages and industries, making a long lasting positive impact on every business she helps. 

Surprisingly, she's seeing a great deal of start ups, reminiscent of the Great Recession of 2009. Applications for services delivered by SBDC are supported by the SBA, and many business owners have been helped along over the years through these initiatives. 

Listen here to learn more about Diane, her advice to companies struggling right now, and the SBDC programs for small businesses that she administers.
