The weeks between Thanksgiving and the festivities of the holiday season usually see a (slightly *wink*) slower pace in many of our offices. During this time, we can reflect on how grateful we are to have fantastic clients that trust us with their ideas, and for the support of our many partners. To date, we have had a record-breaking year in 2022, and we aren’t done yet! The staff are wholly dedicated to seeing their clients reach their goals. And you, our partners, play a critical and necessary role in our network’s success – whether you contribute to a center to help support their operations, refer entrepreneurs or business owners to your local SBDC expert, keep our materials on hand to share with anyone that walks in your door wondering where to go with questions or concerns about small business, or the many of other ways you stand up and champion for us. We appreciate you!
We consider you a part of our family, and we wish each of you and your loved ones warmth and joy this season. We could not be more excited to look ahead to the new year and our continued work with each of you.
Good tidings this holiday season and cheers to health, happiness, and prosperity in 2023!
Tiffany Ford, State Director
And all the Staff of the ND Small Business Development Network
