Thank You!
Greetings!

November is a great month to begin seasonal promotions and marketing. Don't miss the holiday rush and the business opportunities that come with it. 

 

November is about thanks and at the ASU-SBDC we want to give thanks to our clients who amaze us each day with their determination, ingenuity, and perseverance. Being an entrepreneur is not an easy job, and we are inspired each day by the amazing work our local entrepreneurs do. Their visions help grow San Angelo and the Concho Valley and help mold its future.

 

We are also thankful for the opportunity to call the San Angelo Business Resource Center our home at the end of this month. Economic partners have worked tirelessly for over 3 years to help make the vision of a business "One-stop-shop" a reality. Now we are only weeks away from seeing that vision become a reality and we couldn't be more excited. (SBDC staff phone numbers and e-mails will not change) 

 

What do you give thanks for this holiday season? 

 

Can we help you prepare your business for the holidays? Contact us today: 325.942.2098 

 

With Thanks,

Jessica Lambert
