AMarilyn and Joe big thank you to Joe Clarke of SCORE Chapter One-Washington, DC and all of the participants.  Joe Clarke presented the ultimate business plan, which is usually an all-day affair, and condensed it in such a way that made it easy to understand, less complicated and a lot less intimidating.  I highly recommend SCORE if your vision is to own your own business or if you want to make improvements to one you already own. 

Please visit the SCORE website and perhaps this time next year, you will have scored with a business of your own.
