    When you need advice from someone who has “already been there,” you may want to consider setting up a meeting with a local SCORE representative. Formerly known as Service Corps of Retired Executives, this organization is now simply referred to as SCORE, “Counselors to America’s Small Business.”

    The primary mission of this entity is to provide free business mentoring services to entrepreneurs and new business owners throughout the U.S. In addition, SCORE also presents seminars and workshops that are related to starting and running a successful business.

    There are more than 370 SCORE chapters around the country, so there is likely to be one near you. There are numerous benefits to meeting with a SCORE representative and / or attending a presentation, including:

    • Developing a Business Plan
    • Marketing Your Company
    • Obtaining Necessary Funding
    • Accounting for Your Company (such as managing cash flow, and preparing a business balance sheet)

    SCORE also offers a long list of resources via its website. So, even if you are just in the “thinking about it” stage of your new business, it can be extremely helpful to check out SCORE, either online or in person.

    If you’ve had a chance to meet with a SCORE representative and / or to use their other services, how did it work and what were some of the key benefits you received?

      Awesome advice! I actually setup one of these when I was first getting started. It was definitely valuable. The SCORE attempted very hard to get me to narrow my focus. Unfortunately, I didn’t really understand how and things of that nature.
