Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction. – John C. Crosby
Mentoring is often referred to as the most important resource an entrepreneur can have to achieve success. Getting a mentor will allow you to talk your issues through with an invested, experienced entrepreneur who has been there before and will guide you and your business in the right direction.
