There is an ongoing debate among psychologists as to whether entrepreneurism is an innate talent or if it can be learned. Results have been inconclusive, but we believe, that entrepreneurism can be grown via mentoring.
What is a Mentor?
A business mentor is someone with more entrepreneurial business experience than you, who serves as a trusted confidante over an extended period.
A mentor can be a strong presence during times of stability or transition; it’s not always when times are tough that you need someone to lean on. Sometimes when things are going great, is when you need the most direction.
Benefits of Entrepreneurial Mentorship:
Where else are you going to turn?
As an entrepreneur, you do not have a boss or coworkers to turn to when you are struggling. It can be challenging to move forward without discussing with someone that has some context or intelligence of what you are going through, and that makes it easy to give up.
The Transformation Legacy strives to be there for our mentees in everything they do. When you need a shoulder to lean on, we are that shoulder for you.
They Have Been There and Done That
As mentioned in the previous point, when you’re stuck, you can turn to someone who might have had the same experience.
But they have experienced many other things that you are not even close to experiencing; they can help you avoid making mistakes that they have made. However, it is not always about negatives; a mentor can help you to reach the success that they have experience reaching. And what you need to do to propel yourself and your business forward.
The Transformation Legacy is run by businesswomen who have operated in the entrepreneurship, SME and South African business world for years. We help our mentees through the experiences we have and help them to make smart choices for their business.
Expand Your Social Network
Mentors who have been in the business for a long time have a big social network that you would not have access to when you just entered the game. Your mentor will be able to introduce you to people who will be useful for you.
You can also avoid unnecessary networking events and meetings when your mentor points you in the right direction.
The Transformation Legacy focusses on expanding our entrepreneurs in all manners. We help them by introducing them to the business people who can make an impact on their business.
A Trusted Long-Term Relationship
When you start a business, you don’t realise how important people you can trust are. There are many people and empty promises that you will need to work through before you realise how to pick and choose the right people in your life.
Having a mentor whom you can build trust with is one of the most valuable tools that you could give yourself and your business.
The Transformation Legacy will be here for you and your business as long as you need us. Contact us today to find out more about how our Entrepreneurial Mentorship can help grow your business.
