          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.

Elite Soccer

Mike Steele’s life has revolved around a soccer ball since childhood. While playing and coaching, he still made time to earn his Masters of Social Work and work as a middle school counselor. However, he witnessed the importance of sports in a child’s development and realized his goal.

In 1998, Mike created Elite Soccer for both team training and soccer camps. Within a few years, more students ran on the Elite soccer fields, and soon, Mike’s business was training more than 40 teams annually. He asked SCORE to help with his business growth and operations.

My Successes

Elite Soccer grew to meet the demands of parents and players, but Mike wanted to be more involved in his neighborhood. He established a nonprofit, Elite Soccer Community Organization (ESCO) in 2010 to sponsor community events. His goal is not just to coach kids in soccer but also in academic pursuits and community involvement. Elite teams have played in national and regional competitions and 40 coaches from around the country train over 1000 students in its year-round operations.

How SCORE Helped

From 2008 to 2014, SCORE helped Elite Soccer grow from two partners working part-time to 30 full-time employees. In this period, Mike Steele bought out his business partner with the help of his mentors, Larry Lakin and Earl Shraiberg. They helped with the business valuation and negotiated for the buyout transaction. Mike sought their advice through all aspects of operations and growth including accounting, HR and other management tasks. SCORE helped Elite Soccer score.

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.

How I can help you

I have worked in the Travel Industry for well over 25 years. But, 11 years ago I decided to open my own travel agency with a partner and we became Let's Go! Travel. We were the first home based travel agency in Tuolumne County. 

During these past 11 years I have had to face the challenges of re-defining myself as a Travel Consultant, facing the increasing need to be available in all types of formats (mobile, web, social media) and just meeting the ever growing small business economic changes.
