Client success stories

Nut

"We knew all we needed to know as domestic distributors, but we had no direct knowledge of the foreign customer," says Nut Tree Pecan’s Francis "Putt" Wetherbee, who attended the Georgia SBDC’s ExportGA class and found "it was a great experience."

I had no small business experience before. I am a speech pathologist and my husband is a marine engineer. We took the SBDC’s GrowSmart program, then started going to the SBDC’s free business consultations, and it was awesome. It still is!
