Owning your own business can certainly be rewarding in many ways but it can also present difficult challenges.  In today’s business climate the problems that you face can be numerous and complex.  The solutions are not always self evident, and you need someone you can turn to for objective and confidential advice-someone who has walked in your shoes.  SCORE’s core mission is to help you succeed and we are here to help you and an SBA study shows that businesses counseled by SCORE have a substantially higher survival rate.

SCORE’s counselors are experienced business people who have likely faced many of the same problems that you face today.  Common problems often include cash flow management, expense control, increasing sales or thinking through your business plan.   We can help by acting as your business advisor-someone you can go to confidentially, ask hard questions and be unbiased advise at no cost to you.

The most common way to get started is to talk to or meet with one of our experienced business counselors.  Call us at 386/25-6889 and arrange an initial telephone discussion or a face-to-face meeting in one of our local offices or at your place of business.  You can also request that an experienced counselor contact you by completing the simple form shown below.
