C'mon, you know that I'm not going to name names, although I can think of a few good nominees. The stupidest leader around is the one who won't ask for help - the one who won't ask questions. The smartest leader around is the one who does his or her homework. The smartest startup leaders in the U.S. consult SCORE before they open their doors.
- Go to SCORE.org
- Find a mentor online (there are 13,000 of them,) or
- Call your local SCORE chapter (there are 364) to set up a meeting and they will assign mentors to you, selecting them on the basis of their experience with your type of business, question or problem
