Bucknell University SBDC Client Success Story

From a very young age, Graeme Woods knew that he wanted to start and be successful in a company of his own. When he was young, he would spend hours in the library reading book after book on how to launch a business. Today, Graeme lives his dream as the founder and President of G.S. Woods Financial Solutions LLC.

Graeme is a Veteran, having served in the Army as a Civil Affairs Sergeant, linguist, and parachutist. He was deployed in Bosnia from 2003 to 2004, where he helped local farmers develop strategies to compete in international markets. During his service, he drove over 500 hours in a combat zone with no incidents, earning the Army’s “Driver and Mechanic” badge.

Following his service to our country, Graeme endeavored to start a company with the goal of helping individuals plan for the future and live better, more prosperous lives. After seeing the market crash in 2008, Graeme knew that people needed help setting financial goals and achieving them.

After learning of the services of the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) at Bucknell University, Graeme sought out assistance in developing a targeted plan for growing his business as well as developing a strategic marketing plan. The SBDC aided him with industry research and provided recommendations about social media marketing.

With the help of the SBDC, G.S. Woods Financial Solutions has grown to new heights. G.S. Woods recently expanded by hiring a marketing and communications associate who helped in the creation of a brand new and improved company website. With a revolutionized marketing strategy, Graeme has been able to reach more customers and provide them with the high-quality financial planning assistance that they want, need, and deserve.
