‘All Business Conference’ unites small businesses in southern Idaho
TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — The Magic Valley has become known as a hotbed for small business success, and after years of pandemic-related challenges, local businesses are coming together to help each other recover.
Since the start of 2020, small business owners in the Magic Valley have faced challenges, many of which could never have been planned.
Now, as the small business community comes together, they are working together to help each other get back on their feet.
“Seeing what people’s problems are and finding ways in which I or someone else in the same community can help them solve their problems. That’s what most of these things are about, I believe,” said Shawn Hyde of Canyon Valuations.
On Wednesday, the Small Business Development Center hosted its fifth annual All Business Conference.
The speakers shared their experiences within the Magic Valley.
“I am a strong believer in community, living together and working together. It was tough, we were apart, but it’s good to get back together and really build those relationships,” said Zach Rinard of Rinard Media.
Relationships were the theme of the day, with lessons on the importance of strong relationships throughout the event.
“I believe if you invest in people and treat them well, you can have a strong team and a strong culture that can accomplish anything,” Rinard said.
With the event over for the year, those in attendance are urging other business owners to come in 2023. But, in the meantime, local resources are available to anyone, anytime.
“The SBDC locally has everyone’s number and a good directory of what people in the area can do and what kind of services you get through that,” Hyde said.
