I never knew this organization existed. Frankly, I was skeptical on what kind of a response I would get. After my conversation with him I can’t wait to meet him face to face, and get more involved with this organization. I am excited with potentials of how this can make me grow as a business person.
  • The SCORE associate I dealt with, was straight-forward, giving me the information I needed, answering questions I had, and providing me with direction on how to start up my small business. Knowing that he works on a volunteer basis assures me that he is passionate about the services he provides. I’m glad I found SCORE and I’ll recommend it to anyone seeking help starting up or managing a business.
  • We had good chemistry and are a good match for a Mentor/Mentee relationship. My counselor is sharp, focused, and gets right to the point which I really appreciate. He’s not a chit-chatter yet we were able to establish rapport quickly. He is an excellent communicator. A good listener and asks pointed questions until he is satisfied he understands my business and my particular needs at this point in my career. Only then did he start to apply some of his principles of success for an entrepreneur. I have some work to do but I feel like I now have someone to call when I need advice, guidance or a sounding board in business.
  • Free help from people who have had experience with a business is wonderful.
  • Counselor was very professional, very helpful and not condescending. While he had much to offer, he was respectful and made us feel good about ourselves and our project. He didn’t make us feel badly about asking for help. He gave personal examples from his business that related to our situation, that helped illustrate issues he wanted to discuss. Thus, making us feel like he was relating to us personally. It was helpful and not preachy.
  • Nowadays with everything being certified or registered along with the cost of education the lack of jobs and mentoring options; where else could you get such a breadth of knowledge or experience to draw from and for free! This type of common knowledge sharing is what will save our country. Thank you. Score has people that care.
  • Counselor was upfront with me and didn’t hold back. He was able to answer all my questions and didn’t make feel dumb at all.
  • Counselor is very professional, knowledgeable and volunteered to help in other areas that I did not think about. We even set another appointment for next week, which does not give him much time to research the topic that we talked about but he was OK with that.
  • The response to my application for assistance with my business funding was immediate and very, very informative. Absolutely a very positive experience with a well informed individual.
