SCORE seems to have really beefed up their services over the past few years. When I first used the SCORE resources back in 1999 I wasn’t very impressed. The local office seemed like an incredibly dreary place that almost seemed abandoned at times. And it wasn’t all that easy to find a person knowledgeable in specific types of businesses.
Obviously I should have revisited this resource before 12 years had gone by. But it was hard to shake that initial first impression.

In 2010 alone, SCORE helped create over 71,000 jobs for Americans! Businesses mentored by SCORE in 2010 had an average of $185,737 in revenue.”
