Maaike Charron - CUP: Clay & Unlimited Possibility

MBO’s Self-Employment Assistance 10-week development program proved to be a very intentional and productive approach to launching my business. The process forced me to sit down and really focus exclusively on planning my business. The training sessions were very informative, and the sessions on branding, marketing, and networking in particular helped inform my business plan. I enjoyed meeting other entrepreneurs and small business owners at the trainings – it was helpful to be around others who understand what I was going through. My Development Officer, Alicia Ivany, was great to work with. She was always on the ball and quick to provide encouragement, feedback, and advice.
