The mission of The Business Mentoring Solution is to support solopreneurs to reach new heights and fulfill their potential.
This mission will be achieved through writing and publishing books and other information products; training workshops for mentees, mentors, and mentoring program managers; speaking engagements to raise awareness of the impact of a mentoring relationship; and online learning courses to reach a wider range of learners.
I do this by providing clear, coherent, concise, and comprehensive guides to develop and nurture healthy and effective mentoring relationships. Other information products such as planners/journals and ‘tips’ mini-books support the processes outlined in the books and guide the learner to work through the exercises. The materials are highly accessible and provided at a moderate price in diverse formats (print books, e-books, audio-books, online courses)
I do this for solopreneurs, their mentors, and the mentoring program managers who may work with them in community-based business mentoring programs.
The value that this work brings to them is that mentoring guides are available for workplace-based mentoring programs or community-based mentoring programs for youth at risk, but not for the solopreneur. The special case of the solopreneur has largely been ignored, yet they are the backbone of the Canadian economy. They are often overwhelmed and frustrated by the lack of support available to them. These materials address their needs, and those of their mentors and mentoring program managers, directly. They offer practical solutions to commonly-encountered issues to inspire, educate, motivate, and reassure.
I also provide superior speaking and consulting services on the topic of mentoring solopreneurs. As an experienced mentor, certified mentoring program manager, mentoring program developer, and published subject-matter expert, I offer expert advice and guidance on mentoring.
The guiding principle of The Business Mentoring Solution is Support Solopreneur Success by creating supportive environments and nurturing healthy relationships.
Respect / Integrity / Inclusiveness / Clarity, Coherence, Accuracy /
Healthy Relationships / Authenticity / Collaboration / Supportive Environments
I envision a world where solopreneurs, with the help of their mentors, are successful in achieving their personal and professional goals and objectives, a world where they do more than survive: they thrive.
