Part 3: Starting a Business Series (A Case Example)
The first few months of your business are incredibly challenging. There’s so much you need to learn – and you have to do it quickly. That’s where mentors come in.
The right mentors can make an enormous difference to the “learning phase” of your business. They can shorten the cycle, help you identify weaknesses, and see through blind spots.
What makes a great mentor, and more importantly, how do you know who will be the best mentor for you in particular? That’s the topic of Episode 122, where I talk about the criteria for finding mentors and models to accelerate the learning process.
