SCORE-ing Help for New Texas Businesses - Constance Matheny and Bruce Wright
A life in business doesn’t always end with retirement. In Texas and across the U.S., thousands of successful retired men and women are using the skills and knowledge accrued in their careers to help others get started in the business world.
The Dallas SCORE office, opened in 1965, has 50 volunteers with backgrounds in accounting, finance, marketing, franchising, real estate and social media.
“Our volunteers want to give back to their community and to make a difference in the lives of the people we mentor,” says Ken Fogg, director of the Dallas office.
One of the office’s many success stories is Hagar Collars and their product, Neck’s Best Thing®. The collar was named after a cockatoo; Hagar was plucking out his feathers to the point of injury.
