As CPA firm committed to helping small business owners succeed, we are always looking for affordable value added resources to direct our clients to. One of the best resources is the SCORE organization. It is a non-profit organization, and in their own words they are “…dedicated to helping small businesses get off the ground, grow, and achieve their goals, through education and mentorship.”
Business owners are often faced with the challenge of building a business with little to no support structure. It can be a lonely experience for business owners trying to build their business.
SCORE can assist and be an integral part of your support network. It is staffed with over 13,000 volunteers and they operate over 300 chapters. Given their extensive network of knowledgeable volunteers, it is likely they will have someone with experience in your industry that can assist and help you.
Score provides business owners with:
- Free mentoring from volunteers who have experience in over 62 industries.
- Free confidential one on one counseling services. either in-person or via email.
- Free business tools and forms.
- Access to free or low cost workshops.
