At the NASE, we're fortunate enough to be able to give back to those in the small-business community each and every day.  Here's a short list of what our members say about what we do.
As a new small business owner, I was so excited to find the network of resources made available to me through NASE.  It's really helped me understand that I'm not in this alone, and that I have support I can tap into as I continue to grow my business.  I am absolutely thrilled to have been chosen as a Growth Grant recipient, and I'll be able to take a huge step forward as a result.  Thank you NASE for the tremendous honor of winning my first small business grant.  I will make you proud!

I would like to take the opportunity to express my sincere appreciation. Thank you
for rewarding T-shirt Mayhem with the substantial grant that allowed us to work towards our future endeavors and effectively guide the company on a journey for success. The grant provided the necessary means for establishing a foundation and framework for the business.

It’s been a long time since I joined, however, you offered a way for me to get and afford good health insurance.  I have since enjoyed the News Letters and the articles about what the NASE is doing in Washington DC to represent the Self-Employed.

The office Depot discount saved me enough money last month alone to cover the cost of my NASE membership

Thank you NASE!

- J. Peters

I joined the NASE in early 2016 and thought it was a good idea, considering they are one of the largest organizations for small business/self-employed that I could find. Any way I could get additional resources to help me succeed with my business and continue learning was something I felt obligated to do.

- Matthew Bernier

I joined NASE in 2014 after feeling really alone in the world of entrepreneurship. I thought that NASE would be a great way to meet others who intimately understood the unique challenges and joys of self-employment—and the benefits are great.

I tell everyone about NASE and the wonderful benefits of being a member.  The price to join is very affordable compared to the value of the benefits.  I love that NASE works to provide the best tools to be successful in your business.

- Marilyn Green

I joined the NASE for a few reasons: I wanted to support the self-employed community, I can proudly display the NASE Member badge on my website and as the global marketplace continues to evolve an association such as NASE needs to be available for business owners – for that I thank you.

- Chris Bouchard

I joined the NASE in 2014 to better understand what it means to be self-employed and learn more about managing business and researching the best possible tools to help further my business.

Receiving the NASE Scholarship has allowed me to pursue my dreams and shoot for my goals while attending college. Without the help provided by this scholarship I would have to be working more to help pay for the cost of school. This scholarship allows me to focus on my schooling and put in my best effort.

- Aaron Cail

I found NASE because my mom is self-employed and has been for over twenty years. This association has given me the opportunity to apply for their scholarship and have graciously awarded me with $6,000 over the last 3 years to help me reach my collegiate goals. I am very thankful for their help and support.

- Jennifer Cail

You don’t become a success by yourself. When I heard of the NASE and everything they offered, I knew that I had to join. I have been a member since 2011.

- Mary G. Mora

Growing up in a single income, self-employed family has taught me to appreciate hard work and dedication. When I was younger, I saw my father working late and going where ever he needed in order to get his business off the ground all while being there for his family. He has always inspired me and I believe watching him is how I got the drive to work hard and the determination I have today. I am very grateful for the scholarship from the NASE which allows me to not have to work to help pay for college. Now, I am able focus on my education at Florida State University where I am planning on graduating with a Bachelor’s of Science in nursing.

- Jordan Hayes

NASE has been pivotal in encouraging me to keep moving forward. There was actually a moment during this process when I felt a bit discouraged, at that very moment, I got a phone call from an NASE representative welcoming me. It may have been just a part of his day but to me, it meant the world.
