Using a mentor can be a fantastic way to help drive your business forwards. People use mentors for all sorts of reasons – for help and guidance when starting up a new business, for enabling them to translate the clear vision they may have for their business into action, or to help them find answers when things aren’t going to plan.
Generally highly experienced business people who enjoy sharing their expertise, mentors are there to listen, provide information where needed and assist you to find the solutions you need to grow your business.
Mentoring can be a paid for service but there are also organisations that offer advice for free such as Enterprise Nation, and other mentoring services targeted specifically at young entrepreneurs such as The Princes Trust. It is worth looking in to what support might be available in your area and there is an online gateway called www.mentorsme.co.uk that you can use to help find local mentoring options.
Get Ahead VA founder Rebecca Newenham has just started working as a mentor with Surrey Chambers Business Women in Surrey and she is looking forward to supporting other businesses and sharing her expertise. Rebecca says ‘I have learnt so much since setting up Get Ahead VA four years ago and I am delighted to be able to support others on their business journey.”
