Susan Macomber came to SCORE in January 2008 with a partial business plan to start her own business as a construction management consultant. She was willing to leave her position as a manager for a major Chicago construction company and take the chance of branching out on her own.
She needed sound advice for her endeavor and found it in the person of SCORE counselor Brian Stinton.
Brian not only helped Susan in completing her business plan and analyzing her basic business requirements, but gave her the encouragement she needed to go ahead with her ambition—which she did in June.
Today, Susan is well on her way to developing the successful business she dreamed of. As she said of Brian’s contribution: “Through my counseling sessions with SCORE, I got the critical review of my business plan, set important milestones and received the encouragement to start my own LLC.”
