The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) in downtown Sacramento has been a great partner in getting my business up, running, and successful.
I started my medical and dental billing company, OneHealth Practice Management, LLC, in February 2016. I have a deep background in healthcare patient and billing data from years of work experience with both Sutter Health and the UC Davis Medical Center. In addition, I obtained my Masters degree in Health Informatics from the UC Davis School of Medicine in 2014. But as a first-time business owner, I was looking for the additional tools and guidance that would help me start and grow a successful company. That’s where the SBDC came in.>
The SDBC put me in touch with wonderful advisors with real-world knowledge and experience of business ownership and management. I had regular meetings where I could lay out my needs and ask questions, and the advisors were able to walk me through the all necessary steps I needed to take, plus add in some extra steps that I had not thought about. With the backing of the collective knowledge of the SBDC, those advisors were very helpful to getting my business off to a healthy start and are a wealth of business information.
“>Additionally, the SDBC provided free seminars on topics such as business taxation, marketing, publicity, business planning, and business financing. These were, and are, very informative and all directed towards giving small-business owners a leg up. When I have a business question, the SBDC has the right people with the right knowledge to answer them.
As with any local small-business owner, I’m looking to continue to grow my business here in Sacramento. When I work with local doctors on improving their revenue cycle, I envision my company as a part of their business team, just like having a bookkeeper, insurance agent, or financial advisor on hand. For me, the SBDC has become a part of my business team and I am very thankful for it. We are lucky as a city to have a resource like the Small Business Development Center right here in our own backyard.
