How SCORE Helped:

My Successes: 

Maureen Sharkey is the consummate SCORE client. Not only has she met with us eighty-five (!) times, but she takes to heart the advice she is given and implements those ideas and suggestions that make sense to her. She attends relevant workshops, the most recent being the Lean Canvas planning workshop. Again, she implements those ideas that make sense for her business. The last five years have been filled with ups and downs. For example, when we first started meeting, her two sisters were also involved with the operation.  Since then, both have left. Maureen struggled to take over their responsibilities and subsequently has improved production and built sales. The company has finally turned from years of losing money to being very profitable and Maureen is now introducing a profit sharing program for her employees.
