Let's go!

As a business startup or entrepreneur, you are frequently encouraged to operate on instinct, to trust your gut feelings, but the truth is, that will only get you so far. Sometimes, the benefit of having someone who has been there, done it and seen it all can be the most valuable asset you have.

The ability to share, confide and lean on someone with experience and perspective can be the piece of the puzzle you can benefit most from finding. But it isn’t just someone to have a coffee with, who will tell you that you are great. A mentor will provide tangible value to your business, and here’s how;

  1. Someone to offer assurance

It can be a lonely, scary place as a start-up or entrepreneur, unsure of the road ahead. However, self-confidence is incredibly important to success. And a mentor is someone that can have a hugely positive impact on your confidence – it is someone who practically guides you, shares your worries and placates you with their own experiences.

  1. They can provide something you can’t learn from a book

Mentors have a raft of experience and even if they have got the book to prove it, many are reticent to share all their experiences within the pages. No matter how many books you read about people that have made it big, it is no replacement for hearing first-hand, the struggles, barriers and successes people have undergone.

  1. You’re more likely to succeed

Research proves having a mentor is important to success. A report by Sage claimed 93% of start-ups admit mentorship is instrumental to success.

  1. There are network opportunities

Not ignoring the fact that investors trust start-ups recommended by friends, a successful mentor will have a little black book filled with trusted, worthy contacts and when they are invested in you and your business, they are more likely to share what’s inside.

Emily Foster

RFS was...a platform for spouses who understood my struggles and my challenges. It felt like I came to them in pieces, deflated and very defeated and they (RFS) pieced me back together.

The competency amongst the military spouse community is unbelievably good and the fact all our candidates were happy with remote working made this ideal for us as a small business.

I found the course to be an excellent refresher of the skills I used in my previous roles, and also a confidence booster to me, proving that I can do it again
