SCORE Business Group
This group meets monthly to focus on decision-making issues that only small businesses truly understand, the decisions that you have to make alone. Your peers get it. In a closed group with no similar businesses you can get honest feedback and solutions. We have speakers on topics related to running a company. But the main goal is owners to learn from each other and raise issues they are facing. SCORE has several experienced mentors attending to provide their expertise in an honest, open, and confidential environment. Consider joining this group who has a desire to improve and a willingness to support each other.
