How SCORE Helped

SCORE helped us get QuickBooks up and running for our business.  Thanks to our mentor (Joe Mierendorf) we were able to install the program, input data, and run reports.  This has been a huge help.  Not only did we get assistance with QuickBooks, but we received useful operations suggestions, accounting 101 training, systems ideas, and information on tax considerations.  SCORE has had a big impact on the way we do day-to-day business.

How SCORE Helped

My SCORE mentor (Richard McKenzie) helped me through the process of getting funding for our business.  He met with me several times, went over all my paperwork, and guided me along the way.  Anytime I called him, he was there!  He was a pleasure to work with, and I am very grateful for his help.

Ask SCORE

          A friend and I are considering becoming partners in purchasing an existing, somewhat successful hobby shop. I’ve known him a long time, but we’ve never been in business together. What is your opinion of partnerships?  

          The partnership has been the foundation for millions of successful small businesses. Unfortunately, it has also been the source for innumerable disputes, arguments, irreparable relationships and lawsuits, all of which exacted economic and personal costs on the people involved.
