Mentoring is a brain to pick,
an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction

The Challenge

Starting & running a new business involves lots of important decisions & sometimes complex issues. Nobody is an expert at everything & that is ok. It is wise to involve somebody who can help you wade through the treacherous waters of the first years.

Most businesses don’t fail because their idea is not good. They fail because the execution was wrong and enough mistakes were made at the outset that they run out of money before they can scale to a profitable size. It’s as simple as that.

Involve a mentor with the required expertise to help you move forward. This is where we can help.

How our business mentoring can help

A start-up mentor is somebody who has been in your position, worked through it, and come out the other side successfully. A good mentor is somebody with experience in your industry (ideally both success and failure). Your mentor should have expertise in the specific area of growth you’re struggling with. That’s where we can excel together.

Yes we do. Whilst we believe that 1-2-1 mentoring is often the best approach, we understand that sometimes that is not possible. After all, new businesses cost money initially before you start to make money. 

With that in mind, if you are not in a position to fund 1-2-1 mentoring, you should still get in touch. We regularly run workshops on very specific topics and this could be exactly what you need. We run half day and full day workshops on business planning as well as deep dive 3hr sessions on operational business, marketing and technology specific topics where you will be with 10 of your peers. These are awesome value.  

Your ally: New businesses need a mentor because they need someone to trust, someone who can share the lived experience with them & enable them to avoid making avoidable mistakes. We are not there to tell you what to do, but to ask questions to help you overcome obstacles, to be like your partner, a person you trust and can rely on.

Truthfulness: Of course, a good business mentor will encourage and inspire you. They should not be agreeing with everything you do, as it won’t help you grow. Mentoring requires honesty & openness & a willingness to listen, even if you initially do not agree. Startup businesses often become entrenched in their solution without having completed the necessary market research to ensure product market fit. This is one of the most common reasons for business failure.   

If you accept us as mentors, we must deliver the message, be that a positive, or negative one. We encourage our mentees but at the same time, it doesn’t mean that we will only be saying nice things.

A good mentor will find a way to make you see flaws and fix them, it isn’t about criticizing you. A good mentor can see what others cannot and they can then guide you to overcome the challenge.

Guide & inspire: Mentoring is not about telling you what to do. Quality business mentors guide and inspire you to see the path yourself and to take the actions to reach your goals. Start-up business mentoring is getting you to come up with the idea yourself, internalize the guidance and learning from your mentor and realize by yourself what needs to change. We don’t lecture, we mentor and this is where you get to grow.

Challenging you: The best mentors cherish openness and a willingness to have your your ideas and approaches challenged. If you are too stuck in the detail, you can lose sight of the high level “big picture. Our mentoring approach includes asking questions that you may not have thought of before. Our business mentors might play a customer in front of you, asking ‘Why would I buy anything from you? What is your unique selling point?

Skill development: Running a Health & Wellness business requires a diverse set of skills. A strong business mentor helps develop those skill sets. It is not possible for a business owner to be the master of all the roles you have to cover; developing an effective business model, managing a team, developing your website, designing an effective marketing strategy, automating order to accounting process. You can save vast amounts of time to focus on your customer by putting the right foundations in place. A quality mentor can free you up to focus on the right things and direct you to the best places to learn about the other pieces you need to know.
