Business Mentoring

-
Alchemy Business Center

Every entrepreneur should have a mentor — someone who's been down that road before and can share their wisdom on an ongoing basis. Learn about the value of mentoring, finding a mentor, and how to get the most out of your mentoring experience. 

Making costly mistakes while you "struggle forward" in your business can cause you sleepless nights and a loss of morale.

The old principle of learning by trial and error can certainly be an option, provided you have endless determination, lots of time on your side, and no shortage of spare cash to finance your mistakes! There is also a high risk of becoming disillusioned, losing focus and consequently joining the endless numbers of people who having tried and failed, throw in the towel and walk away.

Why not ask yourself, do really need to keep on making a bunch of mistakes, or if you should learn from others who have done it before and are already successful. Finding a mentor is an excellent idea.

It's important to choose a business mentor that has a proven track record both with business and business mentoring. Experience in your chosen field is an advantage.

Take a look at our mentoring program. Is it easy for you to ask questions and get the details you need on important business details.

Take the first step towards building a healthy relationship with your mentor by isolating what you are wanting and when you want it.

Statistically over 90% of new businesses fail within the first 5 years. Considering this strong dose of reality can help you appreciate the role of interacting with your mentor and getting your business up to full power asap. How can you even consider the "crash and burn" approach when you are sincere about your success?

We all know that spending one on one time with a teacher is the fastest way to learn something. One very valuable support for any business owner is to conserve energy. When we quit learning by trial and error we can save all the emotional energy that comes with losing money and making mistakes. 

  • Focus Your Career Path and Set Goals: What better way to define your career path then by talking with an experienced Mentor that has been through all that before? 
  • Making Big Decisions and Crisis Management: You Mentor will have successes and failures, just like everyone, but talking to your Mentor can help you make more informed decisions on your path to success. 
  • Learn about Another Company or Industry: Working with a Mentor will allow you to gain a better understanding of the workings in another corporation. With this knowledge and you are impressed with your Mentor's company, you may even consider employment there. Also, for those looking to switch careers or industries it is critical to speak with a Mentor from that field to get you up to speed and help you get your new career on track. 
  • The time you spend with your Mentor will most likely be few hours ever month, which is definitely manageable in our busy schedules. However, although short, the time you do spend together will be invaluable in shaping your career. An experienced Mentor in your industry will be able to quickly guide you in mapping out the steps you must take to succeed.
