Tips & Tricks｜5 Reasons to Have a Mentor
“A mentor? Why in the world would the UnitWise Heroes suggest I get a mentor?” We know, it seems odd, but we have our reasons—five to be exact. And we promise to not keep you waiting much longer to find out what they are. So without further ado, the logic behind our suggestion.
Been There, Done That
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone tell you the potholes, speed traps, and speed bumps to avoid on the road to a successful business? We think so! Instead of spending time reinventing the wheel, ask a friend for advice on how they handle certain situations. Mentors are great for providing tricks of the trade that can save you valuable time.
One of the best ways to succeed in business is by networking and connecting with clients and fellow entrepreneurs, right? A mentor can help you make connections and refer people to your business by telling others about you and your work. And since a mentor has experience in your field, they can provide you a list of people to reach out to or help you build better business relationships. Oftentimes, the best way to succeed is to have someone help you get your foot in the door.
Although you have your Unit for support, being an entrepreneur can be lonely. A mentor might just be one of your biggest supporters—always wanting to hear about your business, willing to offer advice, and being your support center when you need it. They are the kind of people you want around when you need to talk through problems, find solutions, or need new business ideas.
One of the biggest tools a mentor can provide is keeping you on track. Just like a coach for a sports team, a mentor can help you figure out your goal, as well as provide you with tips on how to get there. It’s been proven that two heads are better than one, so team up with your mentor and make wiser business decisions, together.
Seeing the Forest for the Trees
To quote a popular 1940’s idiom, having a mentor can really help you see the forest for the trees. What we mean is, we often become caught-up in the fine details of our business, and forget to look at the overall picture. A mentor can help you handle and see situations more clearly, bettering your business, faster.
