Here is a link to a recent posting for a client of SCORE Lehigh Valley mentor, Catherine Bailey. The entrepreneur was interviewed on the TODAY show and reference is made to Catherine’s role in helping the business.
In response, Catherine Bailey, mentor and chapter Marketing Chair, modestly told SCORE HQ "I did not mentor Rea Ann in the true sense of the word; we worked together both using our individual expertises. I was able to lend my work experience and background to grow the company into the global business it is today. Along the way, we both learned from each other."
