“Believe you can and you’re halfway there” -Theodore Roosevelt Having been born and raised in a middle-class family in India, I did pretty much everything that was expected of a middle-class child – good education, a well-paying job, and marriage. I progressed well in my career of over a decade and a half with a niche in the manufacturing and IT industry. I was fortunate that every role I took on was heavily focused on strategy and operations. While I thoroughly enjoyed what I was doing, deep down something was gnawing my heart. There was a feeling of a big void and dissatisfaction with my job
Success Story
Pearlins LLC
"I was born and raised in Istanbul, Turkey. At 17 years old, I was about to become the first to graduate from high school in my family, but I was primarily clueless about my education and career options. I met an American from Illinois who taught English in Istanbul at the time. He encouraged me to attend a community college in California. He prepared my application at no cost; months later, in 2015, I was a college student in the United States.

From Shaping Surfboards to Shaping Success
I starting shaping surfboards in 2016. The reason I started was so that I could attempt to make myself surfboards that I really wanted to try, but could not afford. It was extremely fun to design a shape, then shape it, then ride it and learn from it. I started to appreciate all of the unique feelings that different surfboards had.

I really enjoy the process of creating functional, and calculated designs that serve a purpose. I hope to

Blooming with Success: The Story of Goody Girl Flower Farm
"I am the owner of a pesticide-free, organic flower farm in the Buffalo, NY area that does much more than just grow flowers. May of 2022 was the 1-year anniversary. Previously, I was working in a law firm and my duties included planning travel, conferences, continuing education, corporate wellness, events, and administration in the office. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, I lost my job as many of those things no longer existed. The one thing I always thought would be great was to work in a flower shop where I could work with beautiful flowers every day. I really wanted to give being a

Agora Co-Working: A Haven for Entrepreneurs in North Chicago
"I found out about SCORE at an "I have a business idea. Now what?" event hosted by LifeWorking, a similar coworking space that I was going to use but soon realized it's a bit out of the way. I liked their business model and their business community support initiative. Shortly after the event I applied for mentoring and had the pleasure of working with Alan and Paul from SCORE as my mentors during the start-up phase of my coworking space when I thought I needed help with my marketing strategy. From the very beginning, they offered invaluable feedback and ideas that have already proven to be
