Over the course of your life, you’ve probably turned to a mentor of sorts, for guidance, support, and their knowledge in order to make life decisions. No one need travel through life alone, and the same goes for business.
OK lets get technical for a minute. Mentoring in business refers to a relationship between an experienced businessperson (the mentor) and a business owner or employee (the mentee). People at all stages of life and experience can take advantage of a Mentor and truth be known its not only the Mentee that benefits, but the Mentor gains from the relationship too.
