Trendy Trousseau

Trendy Trousseau (Trendy) was a small clothing business already established but at a crossroads for growth. It was maintaining at a small level, but needed to be nurtured to achieve the next level of success. With a business plan and mission in place, owner Summer Wise turned to SCORE to help equip her with the necessary tools needed to grow her business.

My Successes

Summer's mentors Frank Bordonaro and Art Lattanzi helped her to understand monthly and yearly goals along with what to expect for the second half of the year. Trendy was able to finish the year strong and the goals discussed and planned were "almost dead on". The following year, the fashion boutique growth was on par to the planned/predicted growth goals. Trendy is continually growing, its stylist program has expanded to four stylists and a second location has been added in the Canfield, Ohio area.

What's Great About My Mentor?

"I felt so blessed to have been able to work with such a great panel of men that helped me reach my goals and make my dream into a reality. I hope and pray that Trendy will keep growing in many different pathways and I will always thank SCORE for helping me have these opportunities," says Summer.

How SCORE Helped

SCORE helped Trendy put all the necessary steps in place to help with the growing process. This consisted of: calculating monthly goals, purchasing inventory along with purchasing the right amount of inventory to sustain seasonal goals.
