Arun Chauhan a Businessman says , business mentors can put you in touch with contacts who can help you make your business more successful. The more networking you do, the more people you meet. And the more people you meet, the greater the odds are that you will have someone in your rolodex who can help you solve business problems. For example, your business mentor may introduce you to another of his mentees, an award-winning recent college grad who is looking for an entry-level position in web design.

Mentors. They’ve been there, done that and have seen it all. Yet, a woeful number of entrepreneurs start their careers without one. In an age where instant gratification is glorified, it’s unsurprising that many entrepreneurs and young founders do not seek out a mentor as hard as they try to find a co-founder.

While arguments abound on why entrepreneurs do not need mentors but should only follow their own instincts and gut feelings, most successful tech titans have founders who had mentors.

In reality, finding an appropriate mentor is not as problematic as recognizing the need for their guidance! If you don’t already have one – now is a good time to reach out.

Good mentors help you set a measurable goal. This is a must. Without setting goals, you’ll most likely stagnate or go backward. Every year of my business development career, I create goals that stretch me and make me a little uncomfortable. If writing the goal down created some positive anxiety, I knew in my heart that I was ready to attack it. I’ve found that mentors can ensure I have clarity on how to achieve my goals. Without a set strategy of changes or actions to take to achieve your goals, your goals are more wishful thinking than achievable targets quoted arun chauhan
