When I was considering buying a business, I spoke to SCORE. The SCORE counselor provided me with great insight and suggestions of what I should think about. I attended their seminar on Starting and Managing Your Business. I was pleased to see the number of counselors in attendance, and to see the depth and breadth of knowledge that they had.

The Dallas and Tarrant County SCORE volunteers put their expertise out there for people considering opening a business. They offer tools, counseling and referrals to experts in the business community. I would recommend anyone considering business ownership to contact their local SCORE office and get a consultation.

SCORE has been the "go to" referral source for our clients in Colorado for over 16 years. As a former SCORE client myself many years ago, I can speak from personal experience. It's a solid organization with a pool of talented business professionals from a wide variety of industry backgrounds. Their counseling services are extremely valuable to those exploring business ownership.
