Why Didn't I Do This Sooner?

My name is Jack Wilson, and I'm with the Philadelphia Chapter of SCORE where I serve as a Volunteer Mentor. Our mission is to educate and empower individuals to start businesses, and grow businesses. I always feel good about myself, and local business owners, when I can share something that helps them and gets them closer to realizing their dream of business ownership. I sometimes scratch my head and think, why didn't I do this sooner!

Mary Livingston, SCORE Philadelphia chapter co-chair, joins host Jack Wilson of The J3 Collaboration Project about to discuss the important topic of support and education for individuals interesting in starting their own business. They explore the ways that SCORE fosters and aids the growth of small businesses through mentorship, workshops and the hardworking professionals who volunteer their time.
