How I can help you

I have experience in all aspects of starting, operating and exiting a successful small business.

I founded a business in 1989 where we serviced medical electronics equipment. We began with an initial investment of $1,000 and grew the business to over 7 million dollars annually. 

I developed and implemented an exit strategy that allowed me to retire in 2011.

Prior to starting the business I was COO of a company that sold capital equipment to hospitals and doctors offices.

SCORE Mentors Got Pro Health LLC

After 5 years of a high-paced life as an NFL running back, Ken Jenkins spent the next 20 years working for others in every industry from banking to IT.  He grew weary of being at the mercy of industry fluctuations that could swiftly change his employment status and realized he had the skills and experience to branch out on his own.  So he took the ball, and ran with it.  Along with his wife, Amy Lewis, the duo combined their experience in alternative medicine to start Got Pro Health, LLC.  Through the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) he was put into contact with the Washington, DC chapter of SCORE and began meeting regularly with his mentors who helped Got Pro Health define its offerings and learn how to broadcast that message to potential clients.

My Successes

Ken describes his own launch into entrepreneurship as quite similar to his days returning punts in the NFL: “It’s the most frightening, harrowing experience ever but also hugely rewarding.”

Together with his mentors, Joe Clarke and Dee Rogers, Ken developed a business plan for Got Pro Health, LLC that has allowed the business to “prioritize goals” and “create a more focused strategy to grow.”  Just 2 years into his alternative medicine business, Jenkins has already witnessed the improvements these plans have made; Got Pro Health will be adding 2 full time administrative employees by mid-2013 with plans to add 4 more positions by the end of the year.

Got Pro Health was chosen as a winner of the Sam’s Club Holiday Cheer initiative in December 2012, receiving a $1,000 grant and a trip to Dallas to attend a high speed growth marketing workshop hosted by SCORE.  This workshop helped Ken develop a social media strategy for the business and a plan for improving their website.

The current aim of the business is to connect former athletes with alternative care providers but they also have an even greater goal of increasing awareness of the general public about health and wellness.

What's Great About My Mentor?

Once Ken got connected with SCORE, he says he attended a workshop and was immediately hooked.  Since then, he’s met with mentors Joe Clarke and Dee Rogers once a month working to write a business plan, forecast projections, and learn about marketing, messaging and positioning.  Ken says his mentors “gave us a structure for how to prioritize our goals which resulted in a more focused strategy to grow.”  They are still in the process of implementing this strategy but are already beginning to see the results in the form of increased exposure and revenues.

Choosing Among Sole Proprietorships, Single-Shareholder Corporations And Single-Member LLCs For New Businesses

Choosing Among Sole Proprietorships, Single-Shareholder Corporations And Single-Member LLCs For New Businesses

Q: I’m starting a new business in New Hampshire. I will be its only owner. Should my business be a sole proprietorship, a single-shareholder corporation or a single-member LLC?

About the Author

Q: What are limited liability companies (“LLCs”), and what should businesses know 
about them?
A: LLCs are a new type of business entity that emerged in the early 1990s. They have many important legal and tax characteristics, but the key ones are these:
  • Liability shield. LLCs provide their owners (called “members”) with a statutory liability shield that is essentially identical to the corporate shield.

Corporate Social Responsibility Finds Success With SCORE Mentor

Sometimes accomplishing the “unimaginable” is the only means to overcoming the “unthinkable.”  For 30 years, Annemarie du LeBohn had lived with fear, self-doubt and low confidence as a result of being raped and stalked by her attacker.  In 2010, she took matters into her own hands and decided to challenge herself to accomplishing the ultimate physical and mental challenge: the Ironman.  A 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride and 26.2 mile run – and of course, the mental discipline and perseverance to do it all – turned out to be the prescription for turning her life around.  Suddenly life was not only possible but fun; she could create goals and accomplish them.  One of those goals was turning her story into a motivational speaking business and SCORE mentors Tom Patty and Betty Otte helped make that a reality.

My Successes

Annemarie’s motivational speech shows people that they can overcome anything and succeed.  The speech shares 3 mental tools to create a positive mindset and 7 Ironman training tools that anyone can use to achieve their goals. 

Annemarie has been a guest speaker on national radio shows, featured in Toastmasters International magazine (distributed to 135 countries in 7 languages) and had speeches booked a year in advance. She was featured as an inspirational athlete in USA Triathlon magazine. In October 2012, she spoke at TEDxOrangeCoast on the theme of Redefining Relevance.

Through the corporate social responsibility (CSR) side of her business, she is currently working with a Fortune 1000 company on their CSR communication efforts and she’s spoken about the topic at trade shows and in social media.  She has partnered with the Microsoft Store to host corporate social responsibility workshops for Microsoft’s clients in Southern California.

How SCORE Helped

Mentor Tom Patty focused on helping and inspiring the public speaking side of Annemarie’s business while mentor Bette Otte mentored the CSR side.  Tom outfitted Annemarie with public speaking advice including defining her message, practicing the speech 20 times and using the same confidence she’d needed for the Ironman.  Betty helped Annemarie to focus on tasks to build the corporate social responsibility business including creating a business priority list, defining her brand, and developing a prospect list.  And just as importantly, she coached her on how to say 'No' to projects that were not beneficial to her goals.
