Score By Using SCORE For Your Practice

This week, Duct Tape Marketing features a post about SCORE, a non-profit association dedicated to entrepreneur formation, growth and education. Among its many services, SCORE can match you up with a counselor who can help with your business plan or advise on other issues related to getting a business off the ground.

What most lawyers don't realize, however, is that they too can use SCORE as a resource for their practices. Two years ago, I posted on how solos can use SCORE, after receiving a tip from a reader who'd had a successful experience using the group. Though SCORE may not suit your specific needs, since it's a free service, you have nothing to lose by trying it out. And don't forget other resources, such as law practice management advisors (if your bar has one) who can also provide advice on starting a firm at no cost. After all, you've been paying bar dues long enough; might as well get your money's worth by using an LPM Advisor's services.

Hello, Carolyn: I think the reader you mention who got superb help from SCORE was me. Again, I cannot stress what a great experience it was; my advisor was a former finance director at a major New York "big law" law firm. He had insight that was unequaled. Thanks a lot, Carolyn, for all of your encouragement and wonderful tips!

Cheers!
