What's Great About My Mentor?

Besides Tommy Thompson, Holly Jo has been helped by the following list which keeps growing:  Dean Swanson, Randi Luoto, Loren Herbst, Virgil Dissmeyer, Dan Shidla, Bruce Becker, Richard Parrish, Jim Handy, Marty Worth, Greg Boettner, Marshall Jones, Mark Ratner, David Miller, Rick Barkley, Wayne Herivel, Brian Alwin and others.

How SCORE Helped

SCORE counseled Holly in developing a business plan for Veritas.  She said her long-time SCORE mentor, the late Tommy Thompson, helped the firm navigate through a legal situation with their former employer and was an invaluable sounding board for many years.  Also, he advised Holly when her two partners decided to leave the firm.
