A 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.
