When I think back on the past several years and reflect on the dire circumstances my company faced as a result of many factors, I think first of the guiding light of SCORE and its army of caring volunteers. When everything else seemed hopeless and all that had passed seemed to be near an end, I was able to look forward, to see a shining beacon of hope and knowledge called SCORE.
