USU Blanding’s Director of Small Business Development Center, Meghan McFall continues the work in getting our local businesses relevant timely business ideas with the next two weeks of presentations. McFall's contribution to the counties existing businesses and start ups has been extremely valuable to those trying to navigate the uncertain waters the Covid-19 pandemic has presented.
McFall was a big help to the businesses who had never applied for some of the grant funding available. Her background in running her own business put those who had contacted her at ease as she helped them collect and organize the back up documents such as Profit and Loss statements and other documents the grants called for.
Now in this series she gets business owners past the pandemic and onto the business of developing succesful strategies.
