I had been in business for almost 12 years when I saw an ad for SCORE and decided to contact them concerning a need I had for a line of credit. What I found in my counselor, Tom Kelley, was a diamond in the ruff! As a seasoned business executive, he understood my business from a standpoint that helped me to run day to day operations in a much more efficient manner. From developing spreadsheets to calculate cash flow to assisting me in obtaining the financing I needed, Tom was so much more than I anticipated. He went way above my expectations in every possible situation and was hands on the whole time. It is a great feeling to have someone by your side when you are making tough decisions. Someone who will help make sure you make the right decisions that are best for you and your company. Tom has become a trusted advisor and friend. If you are starting a new business or need help with one that has been around for years, call SCORE and you will forever be glad you did.
