Why You Need A Mentor
In today's competitive landscape a mentoring relationship can give you an edge that shortens your learning curve, opens your mind to new ideas and possibilities, identifies opportunities and advise on how to promote yourself but ultimately, differentiates you from your peers and/or your competition.
As an entrepreneur, it is exciting to go at it alone and create something on your own. However, the reality is that, while you have a great idea, you may not know exactly what you should be doing with your business and at which moment to develop it into a sustainable business. I have had several mentors over the years and learned a large number of valuable lessons from each and every single one of them. From not making certain business decisions to fostering certain partnerships, a mentor can help guide you through your entrepreneurial journey.
Think about how many people you know who work so hard but they never get anywhere near success. The reason is simple. It’s because they did not work smart. A lot of people work hard in life but they hardly ever become successful. The individuals who work the smartest and not necessarily the hardest are the ones who achieve the most. Not to say you can work smart and be lazy, however working smarter increases productivity and efficiency.
The goal is to work less and do more – the goal is to put in half the work and get twice the results. To do that, you need tools and leverage – to have tools and leverage and to understand how to use them you need mentors to show you how.
Mentorship isn't just a great idea it is a proven notion.
