SCORE helps you succeed!
Check out one of our latest success stories.
Meghan Ely always knew that she wanted to be a wedding industry consultant. By the time she launched her consulting firm in 2009, Ely had approximately 200 weddings under her belt. "I absolutely loved doing events, but I loved doing public relations more, and I was confident there was a way to combine those two loves," she says.
How SCORE helped: SCORE mentor Emmett Richardson helped Ely institute effective HR policies, determine which clients were right for her, and set price points. Ely says: "Emmett is the perfect combination of advisor, sounding board, informal therapist and shoulder to lean on ... Over the last nine years, he's helped me tackle every major challenge that has come my way, seeing me through to the other side."  

Ely continues to meet with Richardson every six weeks or so. Additionally, she now gives back to SCORE by leading workshops on how to be your own publicist.
