Casey Steele, Square One Kitchens

When Casey Steele decided to combine her love of baking with the desire to own a business, she knew she was in for a lot of work.  Her friends and family offered up encouragement, but she felt uncertain about business planning.  Then her dentist referred her to the SCORE mentoring program.  SCORE mentors provide free, confidential counseling to small business owners nationwide.  Casey was able to connect with a mentor who helped her find answers to the tough questions, provided her with relevant information, and stayed with her as the business changed and evolved.  Learn how Casey turned her dream of owning her own business into the first kitchen incubator in North Dakota.
