"I joined the AASBC® because of the wealth of information available to members. The program, the resources, and the SEMP Approach are excellent! As an Accredited Small Business Consultant, I am not only more valuable to my employers, but I am able to present credentials to other small businesses that I assist which gives them a comfort level they may not have had otherwise."- Eric Combs, ASBC ® Chief Financial Officer, K-Con Inc. - Managing Member, ERC Enterprises, LLC
"When I started my own consulting business, I knew that I wanted to make sure I persisted in continuing education programs, which is why I joined the AASBC®and became an Accredited Small Business Consultant®. The program materials include the SEMP Approach training book and an on-demand video lecture series that provides a wealth of information pertaining to small businesses and how to help owners increase operational efficiencies and maximize profit.- Mollie Watkins, ASBC® Founder, Comprehensive Consulting Solutions for Small Businesses
"Before joining the AASBC, I was already doing internal consulting for a major corporation and consulting small businesses on the side. Since I had not heard of the AASBC the question was, “Is this for me?” After completing the certification, it became instantly obvious that the answer was yes. The training filled gaps in my knowledge and gave me a complete playbook."- La Juana Whitmore, ASBC® Small Business Strategist www.LaJuanaWhitmore.com
"If you’re a small business consultant or want to be, joining the AASBC will give you both the comfort and confidence that you know more about small business than any of your clients - and you’ll be able to deliver the right solution to the myriad of problems every small business owner will encounter. The training book is your ticket to passing the certification exam."- Helal Al-Helal, PhD, ASMEC® Owner of Mac Market Access, Kuwait
"During the three years since the sale of my company, I have coached and mentored small businesses and start-ups but did not feel that I had the structure or confidence to help with a thorough and comprehensive examination. This changed when I discovered the AASBC and began studying their comprehensive training book, the SEMP Approach, backed up with video lectures that bring to life the detailed information covered in the training book. The AASBC also offers impressive ongoing member support via newsletters, weekly tips, power points, checklists and more."- Les Dutka, ASBC® Owner, Dutka International
"Being an independent consultant, certification helps marketability. It broadened my service offering and increased my projects just as a result of being able to promote my AASBC certification. The feature I liked best was that there were two different ways to learn the material...reading which is great and the addition of the video lecture series to plug some of the gaps in my understanding."- Dennis Leininger, CEPA, ASBC®, CPC Owner, Business Transition Solutions
