Avoid time-consuming and costly mistakes by learning from someone who’s “been there, done that.” Beginning January 3, 2012, SCORE business counselors will be available every Tuesday from 5:30 – 7:30pm for free one-on-one small business counseling. Individuals who operate or wish to start small businesses can discuss business planning, organization and start-up, finance, marketing and other critical business issues with SCORE volunteers in private, confidential sessions. No appointment necessary.
SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small businesses start, grow, and succeed nationwide.
