A FREE service for business owners, by business owners.
Running your own business is an emotional rollercoaster which only people who have experienced it can understand. It can be very hard to talk about the stress and anxiety, or indeed about the excitement, when so few seem to really understand. As a result we can feel quite lonely.
Our mentors are all business owners. They have shared the same journey and they do understand, and they are prepared to give their time as volunteers to share their experiences and in so doing help you to understand better.
We will listen to you, be interested in you, and try to help you to see things differently.
“My mentor is a great sounding board. he has the experience of what it is like to run a successful business. if you don’t have any other options to bounce ideas off then why not give it a try?”
A mentor is someone who has travelled the same journey and is able to share experiences.
A good mentor values the client and creates an environment of trust and confidentiality so that the client feels comfortable talking with honesty and openness about their business without the fear of being judged.
A good mentor is comfortable sharing their mistakes and failures more so than their successes, because they know that their greatest learning has come from their failures.
There is no ‘us and them’ in mentoring….we are all in it together, and we stand as equals. Our mentors often express how much they learn from their clients and that helps them in their own business.

“My mentor helped me to look forward, something i haven’t been doing. i came out with inspiration for ways to go forward in the future and i learnt how to be grateful for what i have in front of me.”
