The Portage County Business Council is putting a special emphasis on shopping local and supporting small business. PCBC supports businesses of any size but recognizes that small, local businesses need an extra boost.
Building a business is a lot like raising a child. You become emotionally attached to what you’ve created and nurtured over years of endless investment of yourself and your assets. It can be difficult to envision transferring your business to someone else, just like it can be difficult to imagine your baby all grown up and completely independent of you.
Give Shane a big welcome! That's right, this fall we have two UW-Stevens Point interns joining us at Portage County Business Council. We were lucky to have Shane join us this September and he will be here until the end of his final semester in December.
Well, it’s not just that the cream always rises to the top, it’s that our workforce development efforts produce the cream of the crop.
