Legal Eagle Becomes Entrepreneur With Help From SCORE
After working in downtown Cincinnati for an environmental corporate law firm, attorney Kyra Raimey decided to go into business for herself. She realized she had a passion for family and labor law, and wanted to strike out on her own. While working to start her law office, she consulted the U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) Web site for information on business funding, and called the local SBA office. The SBA's office in Cincinnati put her in touch with the Greater Cincinnati SCORE chapter for helping with obtaining a loan. SCORE Counselor Brien reviewed her business plan and helped her through the loan process. This led to Kyra obtaining a BLX Express Loan to help pay for start-up costs. Brien also worked with Kyra on her marketing strategies.
