My successes.

 I am learning a lot and am starting to implement some of these changes.

What inspired you to start your business?


I met Gregg and Bruce, initially for some business support, but this developed into fantastic mentoring and wonderful business support. From the very start I observed, some fantastic qualities about Gregg and Bruce:

  • They Care: this is a huge step because care is based on trust and promotes growth. It was very evident to me that they truly care and are there simply because they want to be there to support others.
  • They Understand: they both asked meaningful questions, disagreed agreed, and were always respectful trying to move things forward toward a place of improvement and clarification.
  • They Provide Meaningful Support: it is amazing how both Gregg and Bruce, provide meaningful advice, in a measurable and practical way.

Being new to SCORE, I was not sure what to expect. However, not only I am learning a lot and seeing a wonderful support system here, but also am seeing the true value of helping others and hope to be part of that process in the future.
