New York Women in Business, SCORE 

With all the changes we have seen in our lives and the world around us, and the uncertainties we still see ahead, we need to be asking ourselves, "Are our assumptions about our business, source of revenues, and customers still valid?"

What if you could start anew with fresh ideas in a way that is consistent with the principals of the original, but not unnecessarily constrained by what has taken place before.

Use this time now to regroup, take stock and revisit your path forward.
