SCORE NE Massachusetts, Newburyport Branch participated in a workshop sponsored by AARP and SBA in Amesbury. The subject was “Want to Start or Grow Your Own Business?” encouraging attendees who are 50+ to follow their dream, to start or grow their business.

Guests listened to experts, asked questions and networked. Long time Newburyport Branch SCORE client Tim Gould, CEO of Ace Energy Services, shared his experience with the guests.

Tim was always interested in energy conservation, and has been writing articles for the Newburyport Daily news on the subject, as well as, doing energy audits on the side. When he realized the opportunities, he resigned his position of VP of Sales after 19 years with the company and started his own energy audit company.
