Berks Schuylkill SCORE | Meet Jennifer Bednez

In our interview with Jennifer Bednez with Sweet Surprises we discover how SCORE helps her to go from corporate America to a successful owner and entrepreneur. When Jennifer managed herself out of her job after 14 years, she found herself at home and depressed. On an introduction with the owner at that time, Jennifer found herself in the retail world and loving it. As one thing led to another Jennifer found herself considering ownership of the business when the owner shared her desire to retire and sell.

Entered in SCORE. Jennifer found herself in need of assistance to create a business plan. She felt very comfortable with the numbers side of the plan but what about marketing, retail and taxes? All this was out of her realm of knowledge. Fortunately, SCORE provides ongoing support and the ability to meet with mentors who specialize in specific subjects providing support throughout the life of a business. Jennifer found herself meeting with her mentor who helped her to take those baby steps, as she called them, and provide her with the confidence to create a successful business. Jennifer loves the way she can call on her mentor anytime she wants, if she is facing a big decision, she can call him for advice. He sometimes provides her with names of subject matter experts to assist with the situation. She even finds herself sharing those successes with him as well.

If we were to hone in on the one reason Jennifer and entrepreneurs like Jennifer enjoy their experience with SCORE, it's the continued support and having someone there anytime for any reason.
