What do you like about doing business in Ohio? I love doing business in the great state of Ohio! Being dyslexic and an African-American woman in Appalachia Ohio I did not think having a successful business was possible. The professional development services offered by our Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, Governor John Kasich, MBE/EDGE programs and Cindy Voorhies with the SBDC have made the dream of starting a small business a reality. The overwhelming customer support from my clients in Muskingum, Franklin, Cuyahoga, Hamilton, Montgomery and all over the state of Ohio is the reason we have not only survived, but thrived as a small business in this tough economy.
