Mentors are great! A good mentor will provide you with guidance, direction and wisdom. All entrepreneurs should consider investing in a mentor. In fact, entrepreneurs who invest in mentors double their chances of the five-year survival rate.
Other benefits of mentorship include:
- A Fresh Perspective
- Advice, Counsel and Support
- Wisdom and Experience
Qualities of a good mentor include:
- Goal Oriented
- Great Communicator
- Confident – someone who feels like a friend, but is easily respected as a boss
- NOT your boss!
One of the biggest challenges of entrepreneurship is working alone. Working with a mentor will help offset feelings of “being alone” in your adventure. Go find a great mentor and get energized!
