8 Steps To Finding The Perfect Mentor
Many entrepreneurs take on the challenge of spearheading their ventures head on because they want to be their own boss. It takes guts, vision, and a lot of hard work, but once you achieve success, it’s worth it. But one thing many aspiring and young entrepreneurs don’t think about is taking part in a mentorship. That could be for a number of reasons: they have too much pride to seek the help of an established professional, they don’t know how to find a mentor, or they just simply haven’t thought about it.
Whatever the case may be, finding a mentor is the best way to guarantee success. A recent study found that businesses helmed by an owner with a mentor saw an 83% increase in revenue. The benefits of a mentorship also extend to the employee level: employees who have a mentee are promoted 6 times more often than their colleagues without one. When it comes to making sound business decisions, like securing funding for your business, hiring the right people, or even finding a healthy way to deal with the stress that comes along with being a business owner, securing a mentor is essential.
