It’s hard sometimes for some of us to toot our own horn, but a great way to feel good about being a successful entrepreneur is to participate in a mentoring program.
You might be wondering, “What do I have to offer to a newbie?” Well, if you’ve been in business for a few years and you’re still around, you must be doing something right!
Try to think back to what it was like to be fresh entrepreneur – pretty freaky right? Some days you were sure you had it all under control, then others you wonder if you’re the only person out there that doesn’t know what they’re doing.
Now think about some of the lessons you’ve learned along the way – I’ll bet a lot of your experiences and the lessons learned from them would be beneficial to someone who is just starting out. Why not help them start out on the right foot? We’re not trying to create a little mini-me here, but just by being willing to share what worked for you and what didn’t will help a newbie save some time and get started off on the right foot.
So consider participating in a mentorship program and sharing your expertise. In the end you’ll feel good knowing you’ve helped someone out and you’ll feel even better having your ego boosted a bit while you’re getting known as an expert in your field.
Sounds like a win-win situation!
