Press Release: Small Business Center Helps Local Businesses

Thank You to the SBC of Carteret Community College for including us in your press release. We appreciate the support and look forward to working with them in the future.

Morehead City, N.C. (August 12, 2020) – As the Coronavirus continues to impact the economy, the Small Business Center (SBC) located on Carteret Community College’s campus can help local businesses navigate these uncharted waters. Any services that businesses receive from the SBC are free of charge.

“We are here to help individuals in our community start businesses, stay in business and thrive,” said Brandy Bell, Small Business Center Director at Carteret Community College. “We recently received funding as part of North Carolina’s House Bill 1043 that allows us to offer additional services to our small business community. We hope that local business owners take advantage of this funding.”

Marilyn and David Whitley, the owners of Whitley Patient Advocates, are strong supporters and successes of the Small Business Center at Carteret Community College. They operate a thriving small business with a mission to adequately answer healthcare related questions by patients and their families. The Whitleys took classes offered by the Small Business Center and met with SBC representatives to discuss how to put their idea into action, review their business plan and seek feedback. The SBC also referred the Whitleys to the Small Business and Technology Development Center, which is another business advisory resource for growing and developing businesses.

“We have stayed in contact with the Small Business Center and use them as a resource constantly, as well as the SBTDC,” said Marilyn and David Whitley, owners of Whitley Patient Advocates. “We have been very grateful for the help and feel we have taken their advice and used it.”
