"Richard Rose was an amazing help. He was prompt in getting back with us, gave us a suggested road map and steps to follow up on. He is a great asset to SCORE and small business." Colby M.
"My mentor, Richard Rose, is spectacular. He listens well, gives thoughtful answers, and truly tries to help." Donna H.
“Richard is very knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. And not intimidating, which is important to me, being new to retail.” Laurie G.
“The last thing u need with a mentor is to walk away with a feeling that they tried to make u feel good...you want a knowledgeable person who forces u to think more comprehensively about your business ideas....but not one who does it in such a way that you are totally discouraged. Richard was that person.” Wilma G.
“Finding Richard was a stroke of good luck -- I could not have asked for a more perfect mentor to guide me through this.” P. Ripley
