Resources And Advice To Grow Your Business

The Value Of Small Business Mentoring

  • icon

    Mentoring doubles your chances of success.

    According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, only 30% of businesses make it to 10 years. But for small business owners with a mentor, the difference is striking: 70% survive to that ten-year mark, double the rate of other small businesses.

    The day-to-day needs of making your business grow,

    and making that growth sustainable, are beyond the skills of any one individual. You started a great company — but now that you’re growing, how do you write a business plan? Develop a brand strategy? Having an outside advisor is crucial.
