Starting a small business can be an exhilarating and rewarding endeavor, but it can also be an incredibly lonely journey.
New business owners like you often find themselves grappling with the weight of responsibility, making tough decisions, and navigating through uncertainty without a strong support system.
In the early stages, when the business is just taking shape, the solitude can be particularly overwhelming.
It’s during these times that the presence of a business mentor becomes invaluable, providing the much-needed support and encouragement that is often absent when venturing alone into the business world.
A business mentor serves as a guiding light, offering wisdom, expertise, and a listening ear.
They bring a wealth of experience, having traversed the entrepreneurial path themselves, and understand the challenges, setbacks, and triumphs that come with building a business.
When new business owners are faced with difficult choices or are unsure about the next steps, a mentor can provide insights, share their own lessons learned, and offer a fresh perspective.
Having someone to bounce ideas off and receive constructive feedback can alleviate the sense of isolation and help entrepreneurs feel more confident in their decision-making.
Moreover, a business mentor provides a sense of encouragement and motivation, acting as a cheerleader during both the highs and lows of entrepreneurship.
Starting a small business can be emotionally draining, and doubts and self-criticism can easily creep in.
In these moments, a mentor can offer reassurance, reminding entrepreneurs of their strengths, celebrating their successes, and encouraging them to persevere through challenges.
The mentor’s belief in the entrepreneur’s vision and abilities can be a powerful force in combating loneliness and instilling a sense of purpose and determination.
In conclusion, while the entrepreneurial journey can be a lonely road, a business mentor fills the void by providing the support and encouragement that entrepreneurs often crave.
Their guidance and expertise offer a sense of direction, while their unwavering belief and motivation uplift entrepreneurs when they need it the most.
With a mentor by their side, entrepreneurs can find solace in knowing that they are not alone and gain the confidence to navigate the complexities of the business world with greater resilience and determination.
Introducing my Ignite Programme

You’ll get 1-2-1 monthly mentoring guiding you along your journey, helping you to make plans, avoid the pitfalls and solve problems.
Who am I?
The last couple of decades I’ve been involved in helping small businesses and small business units of larger organisations with marketing and business development taking them from loss or startup to 6 figures. I was getting involved with the deep, high-level work like planning, strategy, product development and budgeting.
I’ve also been training as a coach and therapist dealing with mindset and limiting beliefs.
And over 35+ years, I’ve developed my skills in mindfulness and tai chi to bring a further angle to dealing with anything that can get in your way.
Throughout, my approach has been one of improvement and streamlining, figuring out how to reduce effort, time and cost while achieving the best results. Some call this lazy – I call this working smarter, not harder.
