Helping Solopreneurs Rise to New Heights and
Reach Their True Potential

 

Overwhelmed, frustrated, and just a little bit anxious (or a lot)? Getting into business on your own can be a scary experience. The solopreneur–someone who is the sole proprietor of a small business–often struggles without the support networks found in larger enterprises.

That’s where a mentor comes in.

But not just any mentor will do. The right mentor ‘gets’ that you, the solopreneur, are unique. Your mindset–your aspirations and attitude–and business practices differ from other types of entrepreneurs.

Unlike any other business mentoring books in the world, the books in The Business Mentoring Solution Series speak directly to the experiences of the solopreneur and those who mentor them.

In the first book in the series, Harness the Power of Mentoring: How to Find and Work with the Right Mentor–A Guide for the Solopreneur,  I’ll help you, the solopreneur who is looking for a mentor, get clear on:

  • What matters most in life and work.
  • How to align actions with values, vision, and purpose.
  • What actions to take and how to do it without getting overwhelmed.
  • Realistic, relevant, and timely goals and targets.
  • How to find and work with the right mentor for you and your business.

The mentoring journey I will take you on comprises three steps:

1- Know yourself so you are aware of your values, vision, mission, and purpose.

2- Know what you want and need to achieve in the short-term, mid-term, and long-term so you can create realistic and relevant goals.

3- Know how to build a healthy mentoring relationship so you experience and benefit from the best that mentoring can offer.

Go ahead–Change your world!
