How SCORE helped.

Looking to improve her business in the Spring of 2022, Francine did an on-line search for business help.  From there she discovered SCORE Los Angeles and received on-going support from her SCORE mentor, Katrinka Duckworth. “It has been an amazing experience to find someone to discuss ideas with who is patient, understanding and knowledgeable. I have learned different techniques to market my business from Katrinka who helped me improve my website and launch my first live pop-up event.”

Francine was honored at the annual SCORE Los Angeles Success Luncheon for 2022.  There she presented the Baby Milestone Calendar that is one of the products sold on her website:  According to Francine, “Being my own boss is a beautiful challenge. It's like a child… you love it and take care of it, give it what it needs to grow and in the end, it will take care of you!”
