Seasons Change Designs
January 01, 2012
Seasons Change Designs was an idea born from the creative mind of Season Neucere. Using her name as part of the business name was a natural adaptation. As an avid recycler, Season expands the basic recycling concept to include clothing. Her designs are created from clothing that is no longer worn. She creates a single article of clothing by combining different fabric from several clothing pieces. Each completed item is unique and is reflective of her impeccable sense of design.
When Season began to explore the possibility of actually producing saleable items, she approached the ASU Small Business Development Center for assistance. She registered for the newest offering of the SBDC, the Small Business Management Certificate Program. Required courses for the certificate program include Essentials of Starting a New Business, The Business Plan, Marketing, IRS Tax Requirements, Sales Tax Seminar, Financing Options, Understanding Financial Statements and Bookkeeping.
While attending classes, Season found, “The marketing classes were especially helpful and Pedro (Ramirez) created an excellent logo that I’m using for my business. Peggy’s (Hodges) guidance helped me in developing my business name and trademark information and buying my website domain.”
Season additionally complimented the SBDC by saying, “Taking all the classes at the SBDC provided me with all the knowledge needed to start my business.”
