Ask SCORE
          My beauty supply business has grown significantly in the short time we’ve been in 
business and I’m considering hiring an accountant. How do I find the right one?

          There are many responsibilities that come with being a small business owner, and everyone is critical to maintaining profitability and promoting growth. You can’t risk letting a deadline slip or overlook an administrative requirement, yet there are only so many hours in the
day to get things done.

How SCORE Helped

The Knife Guys opened its doors in May of 2009. At that time, we the owners had little to no idea of all it would take to run a business. SCORE assisted us with start-up and QuickBo0ks classes. They also helped with information regarding banking, obtaining licenses and tax information. They were essential in giving us the grounding and sense of reality necessary to run a day to day business and be successful doing so. We have been in business for five plus years now.


We have a business clientele of over 150 and a walk-in customer list of 245 persons.  SCORE was vital in providing us with information regarding our business plan, marketing, the need of a logo, directing us to legal services, promotionals and dressing for success. We would not be where we are today if it were not for the team of counselors from SCORE.
