In 2010 I completed the Entrepreneurial Assistance Program at
Business Services at Accord Corporation Allegany County NY
With the assistance of the staff involved in this program I completed a very detailed business plan for my future art studio. This is a live/work studio space that accommodates the limitations of Arachnoiditis.
In 2011 I submitted this business plan to VESID, now known as Access-VR , for review. This February I received notification that my business plan and budget proposal had been approved. This small business grant will provide funding to assist with some of the start-up expenses for the studio.
This blessing puts me another BIG step closer to creating a self-sustaining, independent revenue source within my studio. The studio goal is to make work to share with the public and to improve my own quality of life.
Many thanks go out to Paula, Marge, Gretchen, Mike, and Jackie...couldn't have done this without your support.
