12 Days of Small Business: Robin Suomi, Startup to Growth
Small Business has its challenges, especially in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. So, we all have to do our part to support each other and the small businesses with which we are connected. So, W3 Consulting is promoting small businesses through our campaign, 12 Days of Small Business. We hope to highlight each day a small business (or two) that can benefit from visibility and that will benefit our audience.
I was introduced originally to Robin Suomi, founder of Startup to Growth, when she was executive director of an economic development organization, about a decade ago. In these 10 years, I’ve learned much about Robin: she’s always positive and optimistic, she understands Small Business, and those qualities she makes contagious with everyone around her. I’m so pleased to have this opportunity to spotlight Robin and Startup to Growth for today’s 12 Days of Small Business post.

How is your Small Business unique, different in your industry? What’s your business’s greatest strength/asset today?
I blend my extensive small business technical training, college adjunct professor experience and life coaching skills together to help clients launch and grow their businesses, their way. Working with thousands of clients across multiple industries has given me a breadth of knowledge and practical experience that is not typical in today’s small business coaching sector.

Keeping up with technology. My professional development plan for 2021 includes training to stay up-to-date with our many technological changes. They are critical to the success of my clients and my own success!
