In addition, the business or owner’s residence must be located in Palm Beach County and the client contact must be responsible for the full operations of the business.

“My SCORE mentor met with me on numerous occasions and talked me off the ledge of self doubt and uncertainty. She helped me break each overwhelming step into an easy-to-manage process. She assisted me with lease negotiations, financial planning, and referrals to resources for funding for inventory. She has taught me to be patient and to keep emotion out of business. These skills have been very valuable in managing clients, vendors, and employees.” Cynthia H.
