EL DORADO SPRINGS, MO — On July 6, it was announced that Tiffany Frost would be the new Director of the New Growth Women’s Business Center (WBC).

The New Growth Women’s Business Center advances rural entrepreneurs in all stages of business development and growth. With a focus on the power and potential of rural women and men to employ themselves, provide jobs for others, and build their local economies and communities. It is a 15-county rural business assistance resource, including training, business planning, and financing.

Frost is not new to the work of community development corporation New Growth and its parent organization West Central Missouri Community Action Agency (West Central).
