SCORE Association Develops Spanish-Language Version of Popular Workbook

Washington, D.C.─The SCORE Association “Counselors to America’s Small Business” has developed a Spanish-language version of its popular workbook, How to Really Start Your Own Business. The Spanish-language workbook, Cómo Comenzar Realmente Su Propio Negocio, covers topics important to prospective small business owners, such as defining and creating a business plan, finance options, infrastructure support and forecasting.

First released in English, How to Really Start Your Own Business has been in high demand in SCORE workshops and seminars nationwide and has become a “must-have” resource for aspiring entrepreneurs. The guide includes a list of questions an entrepreneur needs to help define the company’s core purpose, and a list of the variables that will guide the entrepreneur in the business evaluation process.  Additionally, the updated workbook highlights the importance of setting the most important variables, such as business structure, funding, personnel and technical infrastructure.

SCORE CEO Ken Yancey says, “Cómo Comenzar Realmente Su Propio Negocio is a valuable resource for a very vital and growing part of the American economy─Hispanic businesses. SCORE’s 10,500 volunteers support small business owners through online and face-to-face counseling and small business workshops.”

In addition to this workbook, which was created in cooperation with Aspire, The IABC Group, Inc and Inc. magazine, SCORE has Spanish-speaking counselors at many of its locations.
