and Gene Calvano, Certified SCORE Mentor for a Webinar on:


"Assess Your Business Strengths & Weaknesses with the COMPASS Program"

Learn how this tool can impact your small business's bottom line.

Small business owners are frequently so busy running their companies that they lack the time to step back and fully assess their strengths and weaknesses. That kind of strategic thinking is either too time consuming or too EXPENSIVE – and yet the results frequently allow a company to move to the next level of income and service.

Using a unique Business Assessment tool, this 1-hour SCORE webinar will help small to medium size businesses start the process to assess and identify changes that will improve all aspects of their business.

Target Audience:
- Business must be operational for at least one year.
- Business must have one or more full-time employees.
