  You're adrift in a sea of business troubles and don't know where to turn. Ahoy! Rescue is always at hand with the Service Corps of Retired Executives (SCORE). True to its name, the organization boasts an impressive list of high-level executives, who have eschewed the usual retirement activities in favor of being mentors to small business owners.

  An SMB (small or medium-sized business) doesn't have to be in trouble to use the service, however. The mentors are available to help business owners craft strategies for future success and take their companies in new directions. One protégé said that working with SCORE was like having Bill Gates or Warren Buffet knock on the door and ask, if you'd like some help growing the business. So go ahead, answer the door! Cost: none.
