Business plans, start up, finance, financing, financial projections, cash flow, budgeting, intellectual property, troubled business turn around, retail, sales, manufacturing, entertainment, insurance, environmental industry and non-profits. I began my business career with a startup retail ski shop. I built it to $1 million in sales as the ski industry boomed. When my daughter was born I sold the ski business and became a stay-at-home mom entrepreneur, selling custom portraits of children and pets through mail order and specialty shops (that's yesterday's equivalent of an internet business). I sold the portrait business after five years and entered the University of Pittsburgh M.B.A. program, majoring in Accounting and Finance. I graduated Magna cum Laude and I worked as Assistant Controller and Systems Analyst for a large industrial foundry and rolling mill in Eastern Ohio. Two very cold winters later I moved to Southern California to be Project Financial Analyst and Internal Auditor at Hughes Aircraft. I moved to Disney to manage the financial affairs for several divisions at the park as well as the construction of Thunder Mountain Railroad. I left Disney to work as a Special Projects Consultant for Shell Oil, then spent 11-1/2 years at Digital Equipment Corporation. At DEC I worked directly with the Western Vice President of Sales, managing the budgeting, reporting, and awards programs for a 300 person sales force. I also served as executive partner to several aerospace and banking companies, wrote the strategic plan for a new $50 million venture, served as national training manager for the Finance and Accounting organization, and as training liaison between Finance and Accounting and the sales group. In 1992 I took early retirement and became a SCORE volunteer. Currently, I work part-time doing marketing, accounting, and financial planning for a small family owned firm. I also consult periodically with the Cal State Fullerton School of Business Entrepreneurship program and run three small businesses: consulting for several former employers, art beading and freelance writing

My Successes

SCORE AwardsAurico is committed to support its employees and their community.  In 2011, they added 12 new full-time positions to their staff and now support 63 employees in their hometown.  They’ve made a significant investment in employee cultivation, often promoting from within their own ranks and offering continuous employee training and development.  In 2011, Aurico was nominated for the "Business of the Year" Award in the Arlington Heights Chamber of Commerce and was also cited as an INC 5000 Fastest Growing Privately Held Company in the US. The company works closely with the town government and Chamber of Commerce to support events in the Arlington Heights community.  Every member of the management team is involved with volunteer activities throughout the community by serving on boards, supporting PADS for HOPE homeless shelters, volunteer coaching and supporting the local YMCA, community libraries and United Way. Aurico reports was also recognized by SCORE as the 2012 Outstanding Veteran-Owned Small Business.

How SCORE Helped

Beginning in 2009, SCORE mentors Leo Dietlin, Don Crossett, Jerry Hicks and Jay Rowell began carefully evaluating Aurico’s operations, corporate structure and strategic plan, looking for new opportunities for growth and planning the company’s long-term course of action, including incorporating the talents and experience of the founder’s son, Ben Goldberg.  The SCORE team recommended a strategy and goals that the Aurico team now uses to benchmark its accomplishments and develop annual planning and directions.  The results were obvious – they now serve 2,500 clients nationwide and boast a 97% client retention rate since 1991.  They continue to regularly meet with their team of SCORE mentors to assist in managing their resulting growth.
