Arethe Collections exports handmade jewelry to Spain
Spanish jewelry creator, Ana Rodriguez Otero, turned to Nevada SBDC Hispanic business advisors for help launching and marketing her line of handmade, sophisticated jewelry. With the help of the NxLeveL training program and University of Nevada, Reno College of Business interns, Arethe Collections opened a now successful exporting jewelry business, selling unique, one of a kind jewelry with beautiful Tahitian pearls.
When it was time to actually make my business a reality, the first place I went was the SBDC. They have a lot of great advice. I would strongly encourage anyone who's thinking of starting a business to talk to them first.
