Bryan and Brenda Martin have always been interested in fitness and physical health. The opportunity for them to really make a difference came when the owners of the local fitness center and gym wanted to sell their business.

The problem was that the Martin's had never owned or ran a business, so they came to the North Country SBDC for help. The counselors helped them complete the application, business plan and financial projections that were required as part of the load application. The clients were successful in obtaining their desired funding.

Client Quote:

"The assistance we recieved from the SBDC counselor, Andy Allison, was extremely valuable for someone who had never owned a business. it was truly an eye-opening experience and we thank the SBDC for their assistance to us."
