"My wife and I have started a (product development) company (SONDI™, Inc. –  HYPERLINKwww.sondiproducts.com).  We are creating what we call SONDInnovation™ products such as stylish rain hoods and weather resistant handbag covers.  Internet marketing is an important element of our business and we were looking for resources to help us design our web strategy.   We both attended a tremendous SCORE workshop entitled “Dominating your Industry on the Internet”. Todd Paton from SCORE did an excellent job presenting practical solutions that will definitely assist us in marketing our products on the Internet. His experience and knowledge were invaluable in educating us on the importance of a good website, lead generation strategies such as key words and search engine optimization, and the importance and proper use of social media.

We plan to continue working closely with SCORE consultants as we develop and grow our business. The breadth and depth of knowledge and experience available from their counselors will be critically important to us as we move forward."

"SCORE has been a critical resource for me in managing and growing my businesses; Miami To Go, Little Havana To Go, and Cultures To Go.  I take as many workshops as I can because they provide me with the practical knowledge a small business owner needs from operations through financing.  I am now working directly with SCORE counselors on some strategic issues and I find their advice and guidance extremely helpful. I can’t get enough of SCORE!

"I decided I wanted to start a business capitalizing on my 10 years as a professional wedding photographer. The question was HOW? I contacted SCORE and began my partnership with Lee Fishman, a SCORE Miami Consultant.  Through a series of meetings Lee helped me organize my thoughts, analyze the market, determine my investment strategy, and prepare a Business Plan. Given how much we have already accomplished, I'm very optimistic about my future new business. Thank you SCORE!"​
