In the bustling world of small business, success stories often begin with challenges. Such is the tale of Letitia Clark, the passionate entrepreneur behind ‘A New Way to Go DME Supply.’ Letitia’s journey is a testament to resilience, innovation, and the transformative power of support.

The Challenge: A Struggle for Visibility and Growth

Like many small business owners, Letitia faced significant hurdles. Despite her dedication and the quality of her products, A New Way to Go DME Supply grappled with a minimal online presence. This lack of visibility in the digital world translated into a concerning absence of customer engagement. Letitia recalls, “My business was sinking. I considered suspending my website and closing down because there were no views or contact from potential customers.” This situation is a common plight in today’s fast-paced digital landscape, where visibility is key.

A Turning Point: Southland Development Authority’s Role
