How has working with a SCORE mentor helped your business?

Mr. Idio has tremendously helped my business in many ways. We worked on my GSA Modifications twice, which saved me more than $16K value without going to someone else. I learned along the way. Mr. Idio has a lot of faith in me and is always courteous. He has very strong knowledge as a business man. He provides me powerful resources such as SWOT and how I can do it myself. He provides steps by steps and forces me to think outside of the box thinking hard before doing next steps.
