We believe everyone deserves the American Dream. As entrepreneurs ourselves, we’ve felt the stress and anxiety that you experience every day. This is why out of the thousands of businesses that have gone through our program, 79% are still in operation.

21 Local Small Business Resources You May Not Know About
Clay, Lisa and Sam are more like support staff than landlords. They give small businesses the opportunity to survive and grow.
Having an office at the Nussbaum Center allows me to focus on my family when I'm at home because I'm not worried about getting work done at night.
The Nussbaum Center staff understands what we are going through, and can always be counted upon to help when asked.
The Nussbaum Center allowed me to establish my business as a viable entity.
The Nussbaum Center took me from where I was, a person with an idea, to where I am, a business owner who has survived (and perhaps even prevailed) in a volatile education market.
I tended not to focus on my own needs. I have marveled at Sam Funchess' ability to counsel me out of this short-sightedness. I have been both challenged and nurtured in our regular coaching sessions to make my business goals for me, not give away that essential priority.
Sam (Funchess) developed a Mastermind group of business owners/managers facing similar problems. We keep each other focused on the right things, share struggles, successes, tips, and help each other out.
