How SCORE Helped

Daddy’s BBQ Sauce became a successful manufacturer and distributor. So in 2007 when Ms. Guckian wanted to get a business plan completed to start her home-based creative writing business, she once again turned to SCORE for advice. Ms.Guckian met with three San Antonio SCORE counselors to get advice on her business plan.
