A quote that sums up business mentoring …
“It’s very hard to be successful without having a good mentor, it is essential to have someone you can look up to and emulate. Also, a mentor will show you the tricks and pitfalls of the game because they have likely already been around the block.” – Varun Gulati
Being self-employed or owning your own small business can often feel very isolating. Making big decisions can be hard as the responsibility can sit completely on your shoulders. You may lack the enthusiasm to do certain activities that are outside your comfort zone as you are only accountable to yourself.
Building a relationship with a mentor can be hugely empowering and can have a very positive effect on your business, whether you are just starting up or well established. A business mentor can help support you in making important decisions, help you develop business skills and put you in touch with useful business contacts.
A good business mentor will help your confidence to grow and make you accountable. How will you know if you need a business mentor?
