James “helped me navigate permits and regulations and research to move through the startup process.”

Lisa Brooks move out of the urban lifestyle and into the quiet, slower paced rural community of Mason Texas.  She fell in love with the small community and looked for an opportunity that would allow her to put down roots.

It wasn’t long before she settled on an idea.  A winery that offered wide arrange of wines and wine tastings complete with gift shop products.  As she began to pursue and develop her idea, she was referred to the ASU Small Business Development Center.  James Leavelle, Certified Business advisor met Lisa and helped her understand all the permits and regulations that governed her chosen industry.

James helped her with everything from health permits to her TABC license. Lisa says James “helped me navigate permits and regulations and research to move through the startup process.”  Lisa has leased a property in downtown Mason. Its rock walls and rustic furnishings add to and draw from the charm of a historic town.
