“Nancy Bishop is my mentor. She has helped me hone my marketing strategy..”– Richard Oberbruner, owner of the Richard Oberbruner Improv
Peg Corwin, my SCORE mentor, “has helped me to process the myriad of options I was considering as I evaluated the next steps to take within my business. Peg provided an objective point of view during those times when I most desperately needed clarity. Peg has provided accountability during our regular mentoring sessions which have helped me to stay focused with the goals that I’ve set. She has imparted practical wisdom and relevant experience about best practices, things to avoid and opportunities for growth.” –Dana Sanders, owner of eCom Exclusives
