Business Stage - In third year of operating full time
I started working with SCORE before I left my corporate job so I would have all the pieces in place to operate my business full time when I resigned. SCORE helped me fill in the gaps between operating as a freelancer to a sole proprietor. They assisted me with market research to understand my competition, how to set my prices, and which services to focus on first. They helped me in many additional areas: budgeting, elevator pitch, website review, client forms, and brochure and newsletter feedback, among others.
From year one to year two, I doubled my sales revenues, and the business is operating in the black, no losses to report at tax time.
