Marni Vyn became an entrepreneur somewhat accidentally, after working as a resume writer for a national resume writing company. She decided to start her own business in order to have more control over her practices and customer relations. She had MBA and social work degrees, but hadn’t owned her own company before.
 
Van felt confident in the content of her resume-writing work, but nervous about the back-end management of her business. She turned to SCORE to assist with planning the early stages of her firm. “I also knew that my limited time might keep me from taking these proactive steps,” Vyn admits.
 
Chosen Resumes, LLC is a professional writing service designed to help clients land their ideal job offer. 
My Successes: 
Vyn reports increasing her sales “exponentially” since she first met with SCORE in 2011.
How SCORE Helped: 

Vyn’s mentor, Douglas Singer, offered practical, technical guidance to help Vyn hone her business plan. “He provided me with relevant templates and online tools,” Vyn recalls. “He encouraged me to perform a detailed competitor analysis and identify my unique value proposition for competitive advantage.”

What's Great About My Mentor?: 

“Doug is exceptionally good at asking tough questions,” Vyn says. “He has a supportive style that pushes me to stretch and go beyond what I think I can achieve. He has also connected me with other networking opportunities in the community, both through SCORE as well as his own professional network.”
