Designing Digitally, Inc. has evolved his modest startup company into a mature Corporation in Ohio due to the guidance from The Dayton Ohio SCORE Mentors which has led to receiving national recognition in the Corporate Training Industry.
The Dayton Ohio SCORE Program assists area entrepreneurs and small business owners with advice on managing and ultimately solving their business challenges. SCORE volunteer mentors provide confidential, free face-to-face and email mentoring. Last year, The Dayton Ohio SCORE provided services to many small business owners.
Andrew Hughes, President of Designing Digitally, Inc. said, “After the first meeting with my mentors I quickly realized they do care about the wellbeing of our company, and my team!” Hughes recalls. “They have years of experience under their belt, but they cannot make you do anything -- it’s up to you to take the advice, filter it, and apply it to your own scenario.”
The Designing Digitally, Inc. team was challenged with creating the best approach to streamline production. “Once the mentors helped us work through improving our processes, we focused on building a stronger pipeline between the sales person and the production team,” Hughes says. Strengthening that system will allow the company to build its sales team from the ground up. Twice-weekly meetings ensured that Hughes and his team were making progress implementing his mentor's advice.
