SCORE has been a tremendous help to me in the starting of my business, Advanced Thermal Imaging. I had a dream which SCORE has been very instrumental in bringing to fruition in just a few short months. The first and very involved project was creating a business plan, with which Mr. Bill Leete was very patient, persistent, and encouraging. Being prepared with a competent business plan enabled me to secure a loan from the second bank I contacted. Once that occurred, I was able to take the certification course and begin other details for starting a business. Mr. Leete was most helpful in providing information regarding other services I might need, such as lawyers, accountants, and insurance companies. Mr. Leete was also helpful in connecting me with other men in areas of expertise that I needed. I was very grateful for Mr. Jim Toth’s expertise with building a website; that was invaluable to me. I was also very grateful for Mr. Joe Mierendorf who willingly tutored me in QuickBooks. I can’t say enough how pleased I am to have been connected with SCORE and how impressed I am with the dedication of each individual in helping me succeed; each person willingly gave up time for mentoring and tutoring me. As a start-up business I will continue to use SCORE services when necessary and definitely recommend SCORE to others who are interested in starting a business or need help with an existing business.
