While age and wisdom aren’t necessarily linked, wisdom does come from spending a good part of your life building a successful business. For business owners and entrepreneurs alike, having access to this kind of wisdom is worth plenty. The good news is, you’ll be able to access it for free.
Eugene is fortunate to have its own SCORE chapter with a wealth of knowledgeable community volunteers: from banking, to engineering, to retail, to technology, business management and financial management; these are experienced people willing to share that experience.
