September Myers named 2018 SBA Idaho Small Person of the Year!
September Myres, President and CEO of Sundance Consulting, Inc., (Sundance) has been selected as the 2018 Small Business Administration (SBA) Idaho Small Business Person of the Year. According to the SBA, this award “recognizes small business owners who demonstrate staying power and substantiated history as an established business with at least three years of business operation. Winners must also show growth in net worth and business expansion, increase in jobs and sales, innovativeness of products or services, response to adversity, and contributes to community-oriented projects.”
Sundance recently graduated from the SBA’s nine-year 8(a) Development Program, designed to help small, disadvantaged businesses compete in the federal marketplace. SBA Boise District Director Gary Eisenbraun noted “what a tremendous honor to have the privilege to select September Myres as the Idaho Small Business Person of the Year. She is a great role model for other entrepreneurs to follow. Her hard work and dedication, coupled with passion for what she does, the perseverance knowing that it’s not always easy, and a strong commitment to stay-the-course, underscore what it takes to succeed. It truly is a pleasure to know that the SBA played a part in her success.”
Ms. Myres will be presented with her award in Washington, D.C. from April 29-30, 2018 as the SBA celebrates National Small Business Week. Winners from across the U.S. and its territories will be present, and one district-winner will be selected at the National Small Business Person of the Year.
