March 11, 2019 / Albany Democrat-Herald

When April Hall Cutting and her husband, Craig, started Wild Yeast Bakery out of their home in 2013, they were like a lot of other new businesses owners not quite sure what they were doing.To fill that gap, they started taking classes at the Linn-Benton Community College Small Business Development Center.“We just needed some help because we’d never run a small business ourselves,” April said.Small Business Development Center Director Charlie Mitchell knows a lot of people like the Hall Cuttings who need a one-stop shop for business basics, not just in the mid-valley but statewide. There's an SBDC on every community college campus in the state and one at each major university, bringing the total to 19 centers providing free one-on-one business advising.
