Joseph was so helpful in explaining things to me on a level I could understand. He is very helpful and I will get things done that I have needed for a very long time that I could not do alone. Nor pay to have them done.

Melissa Carbajal | SCORE Mentor

Melissa is so amazing! She asks questions that really make me slow down and think about the business I am creating. She assigns me homework that helps me learn new things each week about being a small business owner. Through my SCORE mentor, Melissa I have already gained so much knowledge in just 1 month of meetings! I hope I can continue to have a mentor ship relationship with Melissa for years. She really helps me think through problems and clarify things for myself by asking just the right question.

Edward Hatch | SCORE Mentor

SCORE offers a variety of services that will help my small business prosper. I started my business because I love what I do, but without using a lot of the financial tools at my disposal. This needs to change and Ted will help me make that transition. Ted understands that I am in business because I love what I do, not because I love paperwork.

My mentor has helped to set the ball rolling and making the process of renting my home straight forward by the end of our first meeting. Your organization is a little too good to be true with it being free, convenient, informative, helpful, and friendly.
