After a stellar first year with her photography business, Becoming Images, Penny McGoey visited the Alaska Small Business Development Center in Juneau. She was excited to see that her numbers had been so high but wanted to see what she could do to manage the business more efficiently in it’s second year and grow to meet the demand.
Ian Grant worked with McGoey on several topics, including rewriting her financial projections to address the growth she would like to see from her business. Grant used the SBDCNet Research Packet to assist McGoey in the market analysis and worked with her on solutions that would keep her bookkeeping up to date and accurate.
“Ian’s financial projections have helped me face tough realities and fortified the importance of having sound business and financial practices” said McGoey. “Being guided through getting a business plan solidified has been extremely helpful and will ensure the long term success of my business. I recommend that EVERY starting business or small business should be a part of the services provided by Alaska Small Business.”
McGoey recognized that an opening year with a fantastic bottom line was not only a reason to celebrate, but a reason to plan- and AKSBDC could help her do just that!
