Get a mentor at the start of your entrepreneurial journey

We all know that mentors play an important role in the building of successful businesses. But according to a new research study which has just been published on the subject, 89% of successful entrepreneurs wish they’d had a mentor at the start of their journeys. And it makes sense if you think about it. Mentors help you to gain perspective, they know how to solve complex business problems, and bring a wealth of experience in dealing with key challenges. But that’s not all! Mentors act as practical and visible reminders that success is achievable, and that hard work and determination really can pay off. So if you think that it is too early to have a mentor when just starting out, think again. A mentor is a valuable resource to you and your business, and it’s never too early to have one on your side. As Oprah Winfrey says, "A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.”
