          After working in the industry for a number of years, I want to start my own catering business. Conversations with a couple of banks about financing have not been promising, so I’m considering approaching some friends and relatives about borrowing the startup money. Is this a good idea?         

When seeking financing help for a small business, many entrepreneurs turn to friends and family, rather than banks or other lending sources. While this approach may avert the stresses associated with loan applications and presentations before strangers, it carries its own set of risks and potential pitfalls.

I’m considering purchasing a local, long-established dance studio. I have the training and skills to run it, but have never bought a business before. What advice can you give me? 

          Buying an existing small business can expedite one’s way into entrepreneurship. All the upfront effort has been taken care of, as has much of the learning curve. And with staff and resources already in place, you may think stepping in and taking over is all there is to it.

My Successes

After reviewing and prioritizing projects, I concluded that an initiative to establish an inaugural Greater Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame would be the prime endeavor to focus on. His stated reasons behind formation of the Hall: a) Initiate an annual dinner attracting a nationally known sports figure to speak; b) Pay tribute to those who've achieved greatly on the local sports front; 3) Give to the community, i.e., the Boys & Girls Clubs, and, d) Establish a location for the Hall so that community members may visit and remember the inductees.

The Greater Binghamton Sports Hall of Fame Dinner was held on April 20, 2015 at the Double Tree by Hilton, Binghamton and was a very successful event attended by a sellout crowd of over 300

How SCORE Helped

Business Topics: AJQ Sports Management & Marketing produces, manages, and markets sporting/entertainment events, dinners, seminars and clinics.

Entrepreneur Type: DBA/Sole Proprietor

Business Stage: In third year of operating full time

  • In February of 2014, SCORE, working in collaboration with the Broome County IDA, proactively contacted each of the early stage businesses that had been a part of the Binghamton Innovation Center.  The intent was for each of the businesses and SCORE to together determine if there was a fit for the businesses needs and the skills & resources that SCORE had to support these business ventures.  
  • Tony Quagliata was doing research in a number of potential business endeavors.
  • SCORE Certified Mentors David Burch & Berdell Boss began working with Tony, to help him determine & then progress his first priority business endeavor.
  • Discussed that it would be best to focus on 1 endeavor, based upon priorities (financial, personal interest, timeframe, risk, etc). Tony agreed to give this some thought on which one should be his top priority.
