The Illinois Small Business Development Center for the Metro East at SIUE and East St. Louis was approached by owner Ludgina Dieujuste in October 2018. She had a business idea and a passion for running and needed some support on building her business.
SBDC Business Specialist Marti Guntren assisted Dieujuste in reformatting her business plan and reviewing it for possible lenders, as well as aiding in the process of registering her business, and providing additional referrals for lenders and lawyers.
“Marti made things clearer for me,” Dieujuste noted. “I can create my business with the help of an entrepreneurial mentor, like Marti. She has helped me realize how attainable this business can be.”
Dieujuste, who is from New York and lives in Belleville, was overweight growing up. One day she went for a run and has never stopped. Her passion for running and connecting with others has grown with each step she’s taken. She is also a Road Runners Club of America Certified Running Coach.
Guntren calls Dieujuste “a force of nature. She knows what she wants and has the skills and abilities to make it happen. It is a pleasure to help her make her dream a reality. She has developed her team and has moved forward, even when things did not go as planned. In today’s business environment, the ability to pivot is crucial to succeeding.”
