“As a small business owner, there is always that doubt when you open that there will not be any support from the community, and it's a scary thing. From my previous employers I noticed the effect being a member of the Chamber had on the business and community. Before taking the leap to open Studio Irie, I attended the Chambers free Small Business Orientation they offered. I received some great info that was extremely helpful. I decided to open Studio Irie and join the Chamber. With the help of the fine folks that work at the Chamber I have participated in a FaceBook giveaway, and also hosted a Wooster Young Professionals Social Event. Both of these offerings thru the Chamber have helped my business grow. It is hard to imagine that there are only 4 faces behind The Wooster Area Chamber of Commerce. It is amazing all that they do to make you feel included in the business community and how much they support the small business owner. ”
