At some point in their lives, just about everyone has had a thought about starting or owning their own business.  The idea of being your own boss, and in control of your future success, has been a dream for many of us.

            SCORE’s main mission is to help people who want to start or own a small business. We provide assistance and counseling to thousands of people each year to help them determine if their business idea is feasible and worth pursuing.  We encourage you to pursue your dream to own a small business and we stand ready to help you achieve that dream.  Our role is to serve as your experienced business advisor AND our services are both free and totally confidential.  Plus, an SBA study shows that businesses counseled by SCORE have a substantially higher success rate.

            The most common way to get started is to talk to or meet with one of our experienced business counselors .  Call us at 386/255-6889 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 below. 

            Another excellent way to evaluate the idea of starting or owning your own business is by participating in one of our free “How To Get Started” workshops.  Please refer to the Workshop section of this web site for dates and times.

            Be sure to check out our National web site at where you’ll find a wide array of useful resources and tools that are offered to help you.

            Contact us today, and  remember, our services are available to you at no charge and our discussions will be held in the strictest confidence.
