BreakOut Program
for small businesses ready to move to the next level

A project funded by the
US Department of Agriculture Rural Development Office

“This grant made it possible to implement ideas that I had wanted to do for several years and were not able to achieve due to the many aspects of running a business and all that it encompasses on a day to day basis. The TEAM  gave me the ability to brainstorm short and long term goals, make decisions about how to approach the task and if this was something that when it was said and done, was this really what I wanted to do.  I was always assured that I had the final decision, because in the end it was still my business. My business may have been a unique situation; but the Team was always on the lookout for my best interest.  I feel this grant was a very positive spin on my business and also opening my mind to different aspects of running my business from all the input the TEAM gave me.”
