Bubbling with determination, Ms. Tiffany Hudson entered our GC SBDC offices and wanted to purchase an existing daycare in the Fall of 2015. She had an innovative plan to offer extended hours for casino staffers, and a drop-off service where parents could pay by the hours of childcare when needed. Tiffany needed a business plan, financial projections, and sources and uses of funds development; she already had a partner and a lender. Connie Whitt, Director of the GC SBDC, assisted Tiffany in the road map to her dream of being a childcare provider and learning center teacher. The checklist began –Business Plan? Check! Loan package? Check! Lender participation? NO!!!!

With her signature determination, Tiffany persevered and was able to raise the funds needed for her dream. Tiffany did not buy the business she initially sought, but instead began her OWN vision of this much-needed childcare service.

Tender Moments Early Learning Center energetically launched, and will soon enter its third year of exceptional services. Today, with this successful business underway, Tiffany looks forward to a brilliant future and to possible expansion.
