We think our volunteers and clients are the best, so we want to share them with you! This week, we are highlighting volunteer Larry Ornstein, Former Senior Vice President at Hess.
Q: How did you get involved with SCORE?
A: I retired at the end of 2014. I did a lot of mentoring in my career and I'm a big believer in knowledge transfer, so I signed up for SCORE in March 2015.
Q: What is your favorite part about volunteering for SCORE?
A: My favorite part is working with small business owners and transferring knowledge that I've gained from previous experiences to them. I also enjoy teaching workshops.
Q: Do you have a favorite workshop that you lead?
A: I teach the workshop "How to Write a Successful Business Plan." It's one of my favorites because I believe business plans are such an integral part of starting a business.
Q: What can we look forward to with SCORE going into the rest of 2018?
A: Introducing new and relevant topics to the small business community such as social media, the new immigration rules and regulations, cybersecurity, just to name a few.
Q: Why should others sign up to volunteer for SCORE?
A: If you have time on your hands and are a previous business owner or were in the business world, no matter what your position was, leaving your mark on society, giving small businesses a higher chance of success, and the transfer of knowledge is one of the best feelings.
