When Susan M. Kearney, a Yoga instructor, wanted to meet with a counselor to start her own business, she logged on to the counseling appointment page of SCORE Chicago, found a convenient date and location nearby her Round Lake home, and booked her appointment.
And when Ambler FitzSimons needed advice on the next steps for her successful online brownie business, Blissful Brownies, she also went online to make an appointment at the College of Lake County in Grayslake.
As busy small business owners like these approach SCORE, increasingly they want to interact online. In the past six months, SCORE Chicago revised its appointment system to facilitate this online appointment setup. The organization has 15 locations, and now over half, including the main downtown location and all the Lake County branches, are online.
