Mentoring for your new business!
Are you just starting out in business? A mentor may be able to help you get on the right path.
When getting started, most businesses think about getting a grant or funding to help push their dream along. However the government generally doesn’t offer funding to people to just start a business.
There are other types of support available – such as mentors or business advisers who can help you set yourself up for success.
What are the benefits of having a mentor?
Striking up a relationship with a business adviser or mentor can help you:
- develop your business skills
- provide support, impartial advice and guidance
- grow your business network
- reflect upon your business practice.
It’s also a great way to expand your business network and give you a new perspective on a problem you might have been working on for a while.
