Why Didn't I Do This Sooner?

My name is Jack Wilson, and I'm with the Philadelphia Chapter of SCORE where I serve as a Volunteer Mentor. Our mission is to educate and empower individuals to start businesses, and grow businesses. I always feel good about myself, and local business owners, when I can share something that helps them and gets them closer to realizing their dream of business ownership. I sometimes scratch my head and think, why didn't I do this sooner!
