When I sat down to write a recent article for Lehigh Valley Business, titled “SCOREway to Success,” I never imagined the amount and depth of the success stories that would result from the efforts of a volunteer organization.
To show an equal appreciation and admiration for all of the stories and voices, I would like to share those that could not fit into the space limitations of the print version of my article. (The good news is I am not limited on space in my blog, thankfully.)
WHAT IS SCORE, ANYWAY?
Service Corps of Retired Executives, today known as just the acronym SCORE, is a nonprofit arm of the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Well, the neat thing about this organization is that it was started a half-century ago by a group of retired DuPont executives in their Delaware community. The group gave volunteer advice and mentoring to entrepreneurs who wanted to start small businesses or achieve new levels of success in their existing business.
