Their SCORE Mentor: Scott Loggins.
Excerpt from an area media article:
".... The Debners were cautious at first about having an outsider come in to review their private matters, but quickly felt at ease with their business mentor, Scott Loggins, who also serves as a case manager with [the Cedar Rapids Area Chamber Business Long Term Recovery team--all SCORE mentors] BLTR. They appreciate Loggins’ support during a difficult time that had an impact physically, financially, and emotionally.
As part of the mentoring process, [SCORE Mentor] Loggins helped DPI develop a new business plan. The Debners credit Loggins for keeping them educated about programs available and changes in laws that can help their business.
Mark Debner feels they relate well to Loggins as he also experienced the effects of having a flooded business. Loggins was the owner of Kieck’s Career Apparel during the time of the flood.
“He has experienced what we’ve been through and he came out on the other side,” Mark Debner said. “He shows us that there is light at the end of the tunnel.”
Mark Debner said he also likes [SCORE Mentor] Loggins’ approach to mentoring, offering advice that is meant as suggestions for the Debners to consider.
“He has three or four ideas for every scenario,” Mark Debner said. “He offers advice that he feels is best for our company and helps us keep the ball rolling.” "
