Successful SBDC GrowSmart series completed in Peachtree City

The Clayton State University and The University of West Georgia Small Business Development Centers (SBDC) successfully completed their first GrowSmart series on Sept. 18, at the Clayton State – Fayette instructional site.  

The GrowSmart program was broken down into six sessions for small business owners/managers: planning for growth; marketing: research, planning & implementation; leadership & management; financial analysis, tools & resources; and operations. In six weeks, small business owners learned how to become seasoned CEOs.

The 15 attendees raved about the GrowSmart experience. 

 “You guys (SBDC) are doing a great job! I appreciate all the things you do,” stated one attendee, Rita Whitlock, owner of EPM, Inc. of Stockbridge. 
 This same sentiment was expressed among all 14 small business owners and the one representative from the Fayette County Development Authority who attended the GrowSmart series. 

“Keep an eye out for our GrowSmart graduates; they are now better equipped to handle today’s challenging market and tomorrow’s bright future with help from the SBDC program,” said Heather Chaney of the Clayton State Small Business Development Center.

SBDC Georgia provides one-on-one counseling and educational programs to new and existing business owners.
