“Ask an Expert” with the WBC

Free business support sessions with expert consultants

To help you get your business in tip-top shape, we are offering you the opportunity to connect for 1:1 sessions with experts in the areas of e-commerce, bookkeeping, social media, website development, and shipping.

This additional support is available for a limited time, so while you can always reach out to us for advising and resources, don’t delay if you’d like to work with any of our consultants, listed below. Just like our regular WBC advising, “Ask an Expert” sessions are free and confidential.

If it’s been a while (more than three years) since you’ve worked directly with a WBC Advisor, please fill out our request for advising form when you schedule an “Ask an Expert” session, so that we can keep our records current and our funders happy.
