Jump Start Your Success with SCORE!

Greetings ,
The hot and steamy dog days of summer are upon us. If only we could bottle them and bring them out in February. However, technology hasn’t advanced that far yet, so we suggest you find yourself a shady spot, pull up a chair, pour yourself a cold drink and peruse the “cool” stuff in this month’s newsletter.


Our workshop presenters are enjoying some time off this summer, but will be back this fall with a line-up of our most popular topics:

- How to Start Your Own Business

- Finance Fundamentals

- Financing Your Business

- Intellectual Property

- Basic Marketing

- Your Business Plan

- Business Valuation

- Small Business Taxes

- The Artist as Entrepreneur

Joining this syllabus are five new exciting classes:

- Creating an Engaging Work Culture -Valuing Your Employees

- Transaction Planning 101 - Getting Ready To Buy, Sell or Transfer Ownership Through Succession Planning

- Strategic Writing For Entrepreneurs

- Design Isn't Just For Artists - How Design Helps Communicate Your Brand

While it’s been said that free advice is worth what you pay for it, we think one needs to judge the source of the advice before reaching that conclusion. If The Best Advice for Small Business Owners comes from the likes of Warren Buffet, Michael Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and Twitter founder Jack Dorsey, we’re paying attention—and so should you—to this three-minute video.

99 and counting!

Mentor emeritus Herk Streitburger was recently treated to lunch at Bedford's Copper Door by several of his SCORE colleagues in celebration of his 99th birthday. The former "beer baron," who served as a SCORE mentor for more than 25 years, has led an extraordinary life, including an escape from a German prison camp after being shot down during World War II. We all look forward to Herk's 100th next year.
