Bank of Nevada’s Jerrie Merritt and The Funnel Cake Cafe’s Denette Braud had the opportunity to talk about a series of classes aimed at helping small business owners succeed. The NxLeveL® program is a 15-week course which covers many of the basics small business owners will need to know in order to be successful. NxLeveL is a program of the Nevada Small Business Development Center. Bank of Nevada underwrites the tuition for the classes so that each participant pays just $150. Merritt teaches a few of the classes in the series. Denette Braud is a graduate of NxLeveL and has since found much success operating her mobile business, The Funnel Cake Cafe. Merritt and Braud spoke with KTNV’s Lesley Marin about the advantages and benefits of the NxLeveL program.
