Obtain free small business advice through SCORE

If you’re considering starting your own business or currently own a small business, you can obtain free advice from SCORE business mentors. As a nonprofit associated with the U.S. Small Business Administration, SCORE provides free training, counseling, and technical assistance, including on developing a business plan. To celebrate National Small Business Week, they are offering several workshops to help small businesses succeed.

When I first established Engage Northwest, I talked with SCORE mentors. They gave great advice and provided information for other business services that I may need, such as attorneys and accountants who specialize in serving small businesses.

I met with SCORE mentors in the Tacoma office at Bates Technical College. SCORE has other offices, too. They were free, helpful, and worth checking out.
