What are people saying? Testimonies from FORʻEWA Pono clients:

"Thanks so much for offering these classes on the West side!" - Sherri C.

"Iʻm so glad that we came! I learned so much!" - Andrea N.

"Thank you for bringing all of these amazing resources to us right here in our community!" - Maria P.

Learning how to reach my ideal client using social media was so helpful! Thanks Juanita and Christiane for helping me dive deep into who I really want to work with and serve! - Michelle A.

"Christiane basically tore my business plan apart! Which may not sound good at first, but is in fact the type of feedback any startup needs. We went through every aspect including marketing, demographics, competition, life cycles, development, intellectual property, growth strategies, financials and much more...By the end of our meeting, my business plans went from descriptions of generalities to a detailed artwork with a road map to success". - Keokolo A.

"As a recent Ewa Beach CBDO Microenterprise Training aka Momentum Business Builders beneficiary, I for one can a test to the great value and awesome support I have been given through the community program... Over the past year or so I have been able to grow our Residential Cleaning business from a two person operation to a company that currently employs 16 part-time workers, of which 30-35% of them currently live in the Ewa Beach area. It is with great appreciation that I thank the Ewa Beach CBDO for all their help, support and training, and hope to see that this continues on in our community for many years to come." - Lance T. M. Ling Co-Owner At Your Service Cleaning Service

"Ewa Beach CBDO brings valuable educational and enrichment opportunities to children and adults in leeward Oahu that they would not otherwise have. I participated in its entrepreneurial course. Working full-time and being a busy mother of two on a limited income, I would not have been able to take any continuing education to teach me the nuts and bolts of starting a business." - Sheryll Bonilla, Attorney at Law
