BY BREANNA COLLINS, ENERGIZING ENTREPRENEURIAL COMMUNITIES VISTA, THE HUB
As part of The Hub’s Energizing Entrepreneurial Communities program, currently in Boone, Lincoln, Wyoming and Taylor Counties, community coaches have been working with local residents to ask small business owners in the area about challenges that they are facing and resources they may need. We are spotlighting businesses who are taking part in this process to shine light on their work in improving local communities and to say thanks! for taking time out of their busy days to help with support for long term entrepreneurial growth for their area.
