Repeat Performance Sports teams with the Small Business Development Center About a week after starting his part-time job at Repeat Performance Sports in 2008, Josh Sims knew he wanted to buy the sporting goods consignment shop. Six months later he was in the process of buying the business and realized that he needed some help with valuation, financing, transfer of ownership and taxes. Online research led him to the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at COCC, where free advising sessions not only provided the information he needed, but also helped him prioritize his ideas. Last year Josh took the ‘Launch Your Business’ course through the SBDC and worked on a business plan, goals for the company, and marketing.
