After experiencing two layoffs within a three year time period, Sandra Ekland was determined to pursue her goal of starting a business based on her love for animals. She was referred to the StartZone program through the Self Employment Assistance Program.

StartZone helped Sandra fine tune her pricing, develop sales and cash flow projections and focus her marketing strategies and activities. "These are things that I never would have thought of on my own."

"The staff and other StartZone members are very helpful with their experience and advice,” Sandra says. "They truly make me feel they are equally as excited about my business and its success as I am. It is a great feeling to have that kind of support!"
