Congratulations to the awardees for their entrepreneurial success! Bryan and Lema Nowicki, owners of Farm A  Go Go in Cornville, Adam and Chris Bean of TAC Fabrication in Cottonwood, and Anita Marcus, owner of  LaserGirl Skincare Superhero™ with locations in Prescott and Sedona. 

These entrepreneurs have contributed greatly to our area economy, growing their businesses in spite of the  challenges brought on by the pandemic. Adapting to change, pivoting quickly, and expanding services are trademarks of small businesses. In line with these unique traits, the Yavapai College SBDC Success Award  winners have excelled during an incredibly challenging time. It is a pleasure to highlight their success. 

Farm A Go Go owners Lema and Bryan Nowicki started their business with minimal resources and a vision of a true Farm to Table experience in rural Arizona. They have shown grit and determination and have grown their business through one of the most challenging times for small businesses. They were able to reframe their  product delivery and retain their employees, never wavering from their core values, now establishing  themselves as a real Farm to Table destination. 

TAC Fabrication owners Adam Bean and Chris Bean are recognized for their outstanding business achievement  and expansion efforts in the region. Both experienced welders and metal fabricators, the team has grown the  company with welding, CNC plasma cutting, sheet metal bending, tubular structure and general fabrication  services, and meeting exponential demand for fabrication across Arizona. 

LaserGirl Skincare Superhero™ owner Anita Marcus has worked tirelessly to build and expand her brand and  services. Through her growing business now in two locations, she provides exceptional care and attention to a  long list of clients, particularly those with extreme skin problems that other medical treatments have left  unresolved. Anita has established key relationships with medical professionals who value her ethical standards  and dedication to effective solutions for patients’ specific medical needs. 

These three Success Award winners worked with the Yavapai College SBDC team, on multiple aspects of their  business including marketing, branding, expansion, organization, and strategy, to name a few.
