SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
Small Business Development
ASW's Small Business Development team collaborates with you to accelerate the success of your small business. Through expert consulting and business coaching we guide operational strategies, sales and marketing plans, as well as sustainable growth/expansion and more.
We recognize the incredible value your small business brings to our lives and are dedicated to helping committed leaders challenge the status quo. Small businesses make up 99.9% of the businesses in the US and support nearly half of the working population. They comprise countless innovative and unique offerings, and together we wish to sustain and develop this lifeblood of our local communities and economy.

"The moment ASW (Andy and Sara) first met with us (my business partner and I) we began to breathe easier. Their coaching style, business expertise, passion for what they do, and compassion for those they work with shines through in every encounter. They were the first people I called when I was at my lowest point in our business; and with their guidance and strategies, our company is on an exciting path to thriving even in the midst of COVID 19 and Oregon wildfires!!! My business and personal life has been positively impacted forever because of their advice and foresight. If you are considering how to scale your business and get to the NEXT level reach out to them now!!"
Amy Baker-Schultz - Partner - CEO
"Big or small, ASW is there.
To be honest, we weren't sure what we’d be able to get out of the process since we aren’t one of the standard types of companies ASW works with. We’ve been working with ASW for over a year now. Best decision ever! ASW has allowed us to change the way we think about our company and got us working ON our business, instead of constantly IN. In our weekly check in meetings, they truly listen to what we have to say, and always offers constructive feedback and supportive suggestions. They’ve helped us improve all aspects of how we run our business."

Jackie Krause- Marketing Manager & Store Manager
"Our small business has seen a significant increase in store traffic that can be correlated to our heightened social media & brand management skills that were sharpened by attending ASW's webinars. Marketing Director, Sara Weith, knows her stuff and her social media marketing tips, tricks, and tools are what got us to the "next level" of marketing & brand awareness. Like many brick-and-mortar businesses, the pandemic hit us hard and we scrambled to pivot. Applying what we learned from ASW's webinars, we were not only able to stay afloat, but expand our reach and grow through 2020. This once social media-hesitant Brand Manager is now more confident using online marketing platforms thanks to all the knowledge Sara has shared. Looking forward to the next webinar."
