"When it was time to improve my business model, I contacted SCORE. I was coached how to better define my service, improve my website, and prepare for future growth. The suggestions proved to be an invaluable resource to move my business forward."
- Christine Miller, Miller Sales Consulting
" SCORE was a wonderful source of advice and encouragement when I was starting my business. My counselor knew exactly the steps I needed to take, helped me put together my business plan, and always encouraged me, even when it seemed impossible that my business would get off the ground."
-Demeny Pollitt, Owner, Girlington Garage @ http://girlingtongarage.com/
"Over 6 years of being in business, I've worked with SCORE in various capacities. I've been to several of their informative (and free!) workshops covering topics such as investors, marketing, and time management. These are amazing little gems! I've worked intensely with two different counselors, each bringing different skills and approaches to the table. At first, early on in my business, I needed to know a lot of very basic stuff. SCORE helped provide me with a strong foundation for establishing the business. Most recently, SCORE is helping me with the process of writing a bang-up business plan. SCORE has been instrumental in helping me present my financials for the Make Mine a Million competition. helping to keep my eye on key essentials--profit and sustainability. SCORE's help is invaluable."
