Goosebumps Exotic Ices

Jean took Bill back to suburban Philly and introduced him to water ice. He only went back 6 times in 5 days. It was such an unique and delicious product. On the trip home, Jean asked the innocent question, "Why wouldn't something like water ice sell in North Central Florida?" BOOM!

My Successes

1. Using pure ingredients, make a line of frozen desserts of highest quality, consistency and simplicity. 2. Using sound and austere business practices, minimize start-up and production costs without compromising standards. 3. Using up-beat and fun approaches, market the line of products to consumers in the Ocala/The Villages area. 4. Using careful planning and cautious practices, grow the business to be worthy of selling and/or franchising within 3 years.

What's Great About My Mentor?

Dedication: we grew to count on one or all of the mentoring group to attend any and all of our emails and meeting inquiries AND every one of our public endeavors (3 product beta-testing sites, the soft opening and the grand opening). Insight and perseverance: every dilemma, dead-end, frustration, what-if question was met with an accurate, but up-to-us answer. Resourcefulness: if they didn't have an answer themselves, they dug and researched until they found a suitable solution.

How SCORE Helped

Flat out, Goosebumps Exotic Ices would not exist without the Simple Steps to Starting Your Business workshops 2 through 5 or the entire mentoring staff and process. The workshops provided a treasure of insights and resources without being over-bearing or preach-y. The structure of the workshops took us from basic to complex in logical "go-or-no-go" steps. If I only had a dollar for every time a topic caused me to say, "Gee, I never thought of that." The workshops were the best money Goosebumps ever spent.

What's Great About My Mentor?

"SCORE has been and continues to be an invaluable resource for me. Rita, my SCORE counselor is a wonderful advisor, mentor, motivator and has been as invested in me, my company and my future as any family member could be."

How SCORE Helped

"As I transitioned from a fashion industry executive to a small business owner, I knew it was important to use every available resource to guide me in making the best decisions for my new company." Rita Jackson, Laurie's mentor was able to help the new business owner construct a three year financial for Petite Fleury Bakery. Laurie also attended SCORE workshops that covered technology and the internet for small businesses. "Navigating a startup can be challenging, but with the assistance of SCORE it made the process less intimidating. Pairing the professional baking skills I obtained with the business skills from SCORE has been the greatest benefit for my startup bakery."
