Title / Role: Founder
How SCORE helped.

Sometimes you can really feel like you are on your own island when you are starting a business. And for someone who had very limited business experience, I had no idea where to start. I had heard about "career coaches" and various consultants, but I didn't have the budget to seek out those services. SCORE made these critical resources accessible to me regardless of my budget.

What's great about my mentor?

Unbiased, direct, yet encouraging, Sharon and Deb served as a trustworthy support system and sounding board for me as I developed my business from something haphazardly running me ragged to something sustainable and authentic that I could be proud of. They offered their unique perspectives based on many years of experience and helped me shift my perspective where it counted. Providing thoughtful ideas and helpful templates or suggestions for further coursework, they helped guide my business to where it was meant to be. I never felt pressured to "hustle," but I knew they would hold me accountable to do the things I set out to do. I am so grateful for their kindness and support.
