"SCORE has been fundamental in assisting and guiding me to success in my Web Design business in Palo Alto. Counseling by SCORE has allowed me to start, develop and mature a business that is resilient, functional and ideal for my talents and lifestyle. I have also found business counseling to be key to success in business as well as in my personal life. As most business people know, work time and home life are closely tied as one continually overlaps the other. The flexibility in my work and the demands of my family have been closely attended and adjusted to keep me on track. I have clear goals and balance that works, and I am very pleased with the results.
SCORE coaching has been wonderful; planning has been thorough. The deceptively simple, yet powerful thee-step business plan process has guided me in decisions quarter after quarter… until it’s time to revise it yearly, of course."
I give special thanks to my counselor John, who has worked with me for more than five years. He has been a thoughtful guide and willing listener from day one. His total lifestyle approach to assessing skills, clarifying desires, setting goals and defining my success has benefited me considerably.
