Tillamook County Library Silent Auction

By Arlene M. Soto CMA, CGBP, Small Business Development Center (SBDC) Director

It’s the time of year many of us make resolutions to improve for the year. Maybe you want your business to increase sales in 2018. Maybe you would like to expand your business by adding employees or moving to a new location. Maybe this is the year to begin looking at developing new markets for products or services. Or maybe this is the year to start thinking about retiring from business in the future. Whatever questions you are facing in your business the Tillamook Bay Community College Small Business Development Center (SBDC) is available to help you find answers.

At the SBDC we are looking at how to best serve the Tillamook County business community. I’m doing my best to get out and meet business people to learn what needs business owners have so they can be more successful. We are brainstorming training programs to meet business needs and fine tuning the tools in our toolbox to help businesses get the help they need. I’m planning regular monthly visits to businesses in both north county and south county.
