“Recently I attended a seminar called Know Your Numbers that was held by our local SBDC Great Lakes Bay Region. In a word…Wow! I have been to numerous seminars that tell you what you should do to improve your business but very rarely have I attended one that actually gave you the tools and told you how to go about it. This seminar is a must for all small business owners.” Kathie Fuce-Hobohm – SPACE, Inc.
