Working for yourself. Not for the faint of heart. But totally worth it. IF you have what it takes. Do you?

When someone tells me they want to start their own business, but need help, I say “Have you met Dayna”? Business counseling, training and even financial assistance to attend workshops is right here in Kitsap with Dayna Ebersole in Kitsap Community Resources BE$T program. That stands for Business Education Support Training, and they mean it!

Over 1,000 local entrepreneurs have been through the BE$T program and hundreds of new businesses have been born. Success stories include Amy's Decadent Chocolates, Slaughter County Coffee, and QueenBee Quality Cleaning. What's your dream?

The BE$T program works with entrepreneurs who are ready to start a new business or improve an existing one. This program is open to all who are interested and it is also an approved Self-Employment Assistance Program (SEAP).

You’ll get business training, but also a network of supportive community services and volunteer business professionals to help you on your way to self-sufficiency at last, through small business ownership.

It all starts with a "Get Ready for Business Workshop and Orientation." To preregister or find out more about the program, contact Program Manager & Business Specialist, Dayna Ebersole at or call 360-473-2141.

And tell ‘em Peggy sent ya! There we go again...making dreams come true.
