SCORE clients to their Mentors:
It was great to meet you and spend one on one time with you. You gave me great material to work with. After reviewing the business model canvas I was more aware of the areas I am lacking experience and knowledge in.
We’ll have a go at crafting our pitch for our next meeting. Really appreciate you taking the time to speak with us yesterday. We left our discussion feeling refreshed and like we have some solid action steps to pursue. We’re going to put together a list of retailers and their contacts, update our business plan with some financials and see if we can track down some distributors or manufacturer’s reps.
Thank you again for your time!

Understanding this will help put you in the flow of ease of getting this all important work done on a daily basis.
