Living Dynamically LLC Succeeds With Advice From SCORE Mentor

Lisa Montgomery’s small business success came about shortly after she made drastic changes to her diet. Living with food allergies and candida led Lisa on the search for answers. While working as a packaging sales representative, she became certified as a holistic health care practitioner and an associate raw chef/instructor. Lisa is now the owner of Living Dynamically LLC and hosts monthly ‘Raw Potlucks’ and workshops, speaks and presents at wellness expos, and is the author of four books promoting healthy living. Lisa says her SCORE mentor, Dick Powell, supported and guided her every step of the way. (www.livingdynamically.com)

What's Great About My Mentor?

Lisa has this to say about her SCORE Mentor: “Dick Powell supported me, guided me and held my hand as I put together my first wellness expo with Carol Alt.  It was unchartered territory for me but he was there for me every step of the way along with his lovely wife, Lucille.  You can never have enough people supporting you along your journey.  I was blessed to have Dick and Lucille.”

How SCORE Helped

“My SCORE Mentor, Dick Powell, helped me advertise and promote my first wellness expo featuring super model, author and actress Carol Alt” says Lisa. “People were blown away by the amount of publicity we got for this event whether it was print, radio or television.  I could not have had the coverage we had if it were not for Dick Powell and SCORE.  In fact Carol Alt, who has traveled the world was blown away by the publicity we received in little Royersford, PA.”

This business plan is a generic model suitable for all types of businesses. However, you should modify it to suit your particular circumstances.
