Jump Start Your Success with SCORE!

Greetings ,
President Trump. A year ago, who’da thunk it? Whether you were for or agin’ him, there are going to be changes in the world of small business, and we suspect some of them may have significant impact. But fear not; our SCORE mentors and workshop presenters work diligently to remain abreast of the topics that affect small business and pass that information along to you in our mentoring sessions, workshops and here in our newsletter. Pay attention; failure to adapt to change can be fatal.


Our winter workshop schedule continues in February with Financial Fundamentals, and Financing Your Business, followed in March by How to Start Your Own Business and Getting Started Online. And don’t forget, our SCORE Success Pass allows you to attend an unlimited number of workshops over a three-month period for only $50!
