To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to take a moment to brag on Ron Roller and the Tulsa SCORE. They have been extremely helpful and we are so thankful for the opportunity to work with them. I originally met with a lender at Arvest Bank to inquire about resources for small business owners. I was referred to SCORE. I contacted the Tulsa Chapter and within a couple of days I had a meeting with Ron Roller. I was so impressed with how organized and knowledgeable he was. He took the time to answer all my questions, provided me with resources on the website, and gave me a step-by-step to-do list. This was extremely helpful because, I had no idea where to start. He also provided me with a list of SCORE training classes that I was able to attend for free. I attended several. The first class was at the library where I learned the basics of starting a business. Ron taught the class. It was great! I left there feeling empowered. I also attended several SCORE classes that specialized in a specific topic like Social Media Marketing and IRS Laws. SCORE also provided partnership mentors for me to ask questions and work with. I now have a SCORE mentor for legal issues, marketing, accounting, finance, and most important long term mentor Ron Roller. He’s so important to us. If it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t have been able to launch our dream. Thanks to Ron, we secured financing, signed a commercial lease, and plan to open our doors mid-March. I would highly recommend Ron Roller and the Tulsa Chapter SCORE. Absolutely life changing!
