Several years ago, the worst recession in modern economic times was wreaking havoc on small businesses. SCORE national, wanting to reach out to small-business owners, coined the phrase, “For the Life of Your Business.” The strategy was meant to appeal to those who needed help from SCORE’s corps of certified business mentors.

Today this phrase still appears on all SCORE literature, and more than ever it continues to reinforce our message. Why this characterization? If you are in business for yourself, you have to take measures to ensure the success of your business, and SCORE mentors are ready to help.

The new business startup
If any organization knows about starting up a small business, SCORE, with its cadre of business counselors, ranks No. 1. SCORE has over 350 chapters around the country located in large and small communities. SCORE certified business mentors work solely as volunteers and are not paid consultants. SCORE services come at no charge to clients who ask for our help.
