Ask SCORE

          My brother-in-law has approached me about going into business with him in a home cleaning franchise. I’ve always heard one should never go into business with relatives. Is that true?

My Successes

VoMaSmart's very first and current client is Wine in the Woods, one of the largest wine festivals on the east coast that attracts between 20,000 to 30,000 visitors annually.

VoMaSmart is currently working on a complete new upgrade with many more reporting features and languages that will accommodate individuals from around the world.

 

In August, 2014 www.richmond2015 signed on with VoMaSmart. The World Road Cycling Championships (Worlds) is cycling’s pinnacle event, held annually in an international city as chosen by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) through a competitive bidding process similar to the Olympic Games.

The Worlds is a nine-day event, featuring 12 Championship races for Elite Men and Women, Under 23 Men and Junior Men and Women. It is a rare opportunity for the athletes to compete for their country, just as they do during the Olympic Games. Athletes compete in three different disciplines including the traditional Road Race, the Individual Time Trial and the recently introduced Team Time Trial. World Champions are crowned in each discipline.

The Worlds is truly one of the great global sporting events. It is covered by more than 500 media outlets from around the world and is broadcast live to a global audience of more than 300 million people.

 

What's Great About My Mentor?

"When we met, it was perfect because Harold is a software person and he knew exactly how to advise me. He knew what questions to ask, helped me put a pricing structure together and he helped me learn how to market our product and make sure we don’t hire too many people as we grow. Harold was the leveling force all the way through the process," says Jeani.

How SCORE Helped

SCORE assisted Jeani with creating a business plan, marketing plan, helped formulate a business model and helped analyze pricing and product placement.

"I’ve made so many mistakes in past businesses and I didn’t want to make the same mistakes again. It’s like having a friend who is there to listen to you and advise you. I know if I slip and  fall, they’ll be there to pick me up and give me good advice," says Jeani.
