Salisbury Bank Partners With SCORE to Bring you a Free Seminar to Discuss Simple Steps for Growing Your Business

June 9, 2015

Salisbury Bank and the Western Massachusetts Chapter of SCORE are partnering to offer a free seminar to discuss simple steps for growing your business.

Everyone wants to grow their business, but many times you may experience problems such as these:

  • You’re constantly “putting out fires,” spending all your time dealing with urgent situations or emergencies in your business.

  • You’re working long hours and getting burned out.

  • You’re so busy running your business day-to-day, you don’t have time to grow it.

  • You think you may be missing opportunities and falling behind competitors.

If any of the above circumstances apply to you, don’t be alarmed because these are common issues for many small business owners.

To help you get past these difficult situations, Salisbury Bank is offering a seminar provided by the Western Massachusetts Chapter of SCORE. Attendees will leverage the cross-industry expertise of seasoned business professionals to hear how others have addressed these issues. You will also learn how follow-on counseling with Certified SCORE Mentors can address such issues as: managing your time, people and resources, marketing your business, sales growth, and management of the operational and financial aspects of your business.

Presenter Joe Gelinas is a business professor at Bentley University, consultant, and business professional. His partner Tom Whalen is a business professor at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts and business professional. Joe and Tom are Certified SCORE Mentors with over 60 years of combined business experience.
