RDRX Nutrition

I was working full-time as a clinical dietitian in the outpatient setting. Before SBDC, my private practice helping clients who were ready to make healthy lifestyle changes was just a dream.

Working with the SBDC

Kyla helped me from the very beginning. I came in with just ideas, questions and was totally lost. I had no clue where to start. She walked me through filing an LLC, reviewed my always-changing business plan, guided me to resources and contacts I needed including accounting, legal, finance and has continued to help me grow my business by always going the extra mile. Without Kyla and the East CO SBDC, I definitely would not be anywhere close to where I am today. I’m not sure I would have even made the jump or had the courage to start. Kyla follows up by meeting with me regularly to help with my ongoing nutrition program development, improve my marketing strategy, increase my clientele and provides me with tools to continue growing. You should see her amazing marketing materials! Her creativity and designs are incredible, I am beyond thankful for her time and dedication to helping me improve my business. We set goals at each meeting and she holds me accountable while providing valuable guidance.

I am currently a proud small business owner, doing what I love! I have been able to quit my full-time job and work with my ideal clients locally. I provide nutrition counseling, meal planning, diabetes management and nutrition analysis for small local restaurants. I have been able to host successful wellness events, write for The Tribune, Shape, Women’s Health magazines, etc and have met so many wonderful people in our community who have been nothing but supportive.

Before Kyla at East CO SBDC, my private practice helping clients improve their quality of life with diet and exercise was just a dream. I now feel like a valuable resource in the Northern Colorado community making a difference as a private practice dietitian and it has completely changed my life! As cliche as that sounds it’s true, I am beyond grateful for my mentor and the SBDC.

RC Auto Detail & Carpet Cleaning

Building a Business The fall of Circuit City, where I was a store manager, started my hunt to redefine who I am and what I will do. After spending years in retail and business operations, I wanted to start and run my own business. I thought I could build it, and of course people would use this new company and services that I started. Wow – looking back now I am glad I didn’t know

Seeds Counseling

I started my private therapy practice in June and frankly had no ideas about business. Working with the SBDC East CO SBDC was amazingly helpful; most Mondays before the pandemic I’d take my 2 year old to meet with Chelsie to talk about building a business plan and what steps I needed to be successful. I reached my goal of having enough clients to leave my job and be full time private practice in October,

Fox Haven Aesthetics

Prior to working with the East Colorado SBDC, my practice, Fox Haven Aesthetics, was located on the west side of Ft. Collins. However, I lived in Windsor (and still do!) After seven years making the commute, I decided to start working in Windsor. In order to make that transition a reality, I knew I’d need help. Working with East CO Associate Director, Kyla Benson, helped me get in touch with the City of Windsor and

High Plains Dice and Games

High Plains Dice and Games started with a little girl who loved to read books. I fell into worlds filled with Dragons, Ghosts, Shield-maidens, and Magic. Worlds that I longed for and dreamt of. As I got older that desire for fantastically magical worlds was filled thanks to Dungeons & Dragons, Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, and Board Games. As an adult, I discovered the “Friendly Local Game Store”, a place filled to the brim with all the
