Score, the Service Corps of Retired Executives, is a nonprofit partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration that provides free online counseling on everything from accounting to workflow analysis, provided by a volunteer corps of working and retired business owners and executives.

Score also offers free one-on-one and team business counseling at 389 locations around the country; find the one closest to you at

FYI: I am a SCORE advisor and I see several entrepreneurs every month. The people I meet  have the energy and the passion for business – this in itself makes volunteering enjoyable. If you have a few hours per month to give back to your local community, consider volunteering as a SCORE advisor. Everyone wins!
