Mentoring

Experience - Share It

People who read the articles posted at Business Funding Secrets are business owners and consultants looking for tips about business loans and venture capital to assist in financing the expansion of a business. However, instead of writing on finance tips this month, I thought the topic of mentoring was appropriate for this time.

 

Considering the difficult position of the world economy I would like to propose that each of you use your business skills to assist a less experienced person, or a start-up business. You may not have the capital available to invest in somebody else’s business, but you can provide valuable advice and guidance.

 

As a business owner you create jobs. How about teaching someone how to create income?

 

Did somebody assist your success? Are you ready to “pay it forward?”

 

Can a “random act of kindness” be more than buying a stranger a cup of coffee?

 

Do you believe you get out of life what you put into it? Would mentoring someone help fulfill that belief?

 

A struggling entrepreneur may be having challenges with record keeping, traditional marketing, internet marketing, social networking, government regulations, negotiations, or a variety of business functions. Some of these aspects may be more easily accomplished by you due to your experience. You are a valuable asset to your community and teaching your skills to another may be a life fulfilling accomplishment.

 

You can provide mentoring in either a formal or informal manner. The experience can be one on one, as a group, or in a team. It can be up close and personal or long distance efforts can be accomplished with the Internet (E-Mentoring).

 

Benefits of Mentoring:
   • The enthusiasm you provide a protégé may be contagious!
   • Showing a fellow business person you care about their success,   may influence your own success.
   • The experience may provide new ideas that create new income.
   • Mentoring is a positive action and positive results will follow.
   • Along with you helping their business you will be increasing the personal self-esteem of the protégé.

These benefits may not be quantitative in your normal business accounting, but they are real.

 

We are all busy and taking time to assist the business functions of somebody else’s company may not seem appealing. However, you will be rewarded when you take the time to assist others.
