  • CORPORATION (Conventional and Subchapter S)

The following outlines provide very general information on some of the main
similarities and differences among these business structures in six key areas:

Anniversaries are a time to reflect on the past, however, for Sami Ladeki, owner of Sammy’s Woodfired Pizza, he’s already thinking about the future.

Next month, the restaurant chain celebrates 25 years in business with more than 20 locations throughout California and Southern Nevada, including McCarran and Los Angeles airports.

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.

Great article about Goosebumps Exotic Ices in the April 3rd, 2015, issue of The Villages Daily Sun newspaper including a photo.

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.

Ask SCORE

            I own a small advertising agency, as well as being a wife and mother. I constantly read about women who “have it all” and would love to be one of them. How do they do it?
