Why You Need A Business Mentor
In an ever changing and increasingly challenging business world, SME business owners are expected to navigate their business through stormy seas, very often
without any independent and experienced support.
A business coach/business mentor has wide ranging experience built up over many years to pinpoint barriers that prevent business owners and their
businesses from achieving their true potential. The role of the business coach/mentor is to work alongside the business owner(s) to remove these barriers and bring about sustainable growth and profitability.

Business Mentors and Value For Money
This is a question I’m regularly asked by business owners, and I’m always keen to explain that whilst they may well have many years of business experience, it’s
highly likely that business owners only ever worked in their own business, whereas I’ve worked alongside literally hundreds of business owners over 30+
years in the business world.
In short, my experience gives me a highly developed insight into what works within a business and what doesn’t. In addition to supporting the development of the business, a fundamental role of the business coach/business mentor is to support the development of the business owner(s).
How many times have business owners said to me: “when I first started my business, I was able to do everything, but now I’m really struggling to keep pace with the growth….it feels like I’m losing control, and I want to regain that control and grow alongside my business”. If this sounds familiar then this is you:
Who Needs a Business Mentor?
Working with an experienced business coach/business mentor to develop yourself and your business is about gaining mutual trust and respect. It can and
does take time, but the rewards can be spectacular, and cover the cost of a business coach/business mentor many times over.
I work 1:1 with SME business owners who are open-minded and prepared to work on themselves and their business. My objective is to increase delight, and
reduce despair, after all, as I’ve said already, running an SME business is often a lonely journey for the business owner(s), and having an experienced and
independent ‘critical friend’ alongside you can only be a positive step forward right?
