Do you think you could benefit from a mentor, but don’t want to burden a VEP (“very experienced person”) by asking them to give up some free time to help you? It could be time you sought out a “micro-mentor” – a part-time advisor who can offer help in bite-sized portions, as and when you have a pressing issue. It doesn’t even have to be someone you know. The non-profit website MicroMentor asks experienced business gurus to offer sage words of advice – for free – to newbie entrepreneurs and small business owners. Think of it as online speed-dating for mentors and mentees – with minimum commitment.
Newbie entrepreneurs, listen up.
