No man is an island and neither are businesses, which is why entrepreneurial guidance is more important than ever. While most mentorship is considered a one-on-one experience, having a successful individual or individuals mentor businesses can be just as powerful. Media expert and advisor Lon Otremba shares how his experiences mentoring new companies has been mutually beneficial:
“I think back to the first mentor … and that person was a sort of guiding force in helping me make decisions. I think what has astounded me, as my career has grown, is how many times I keep thinking back to the lessons I learned and the value that relationship had,” Otremba told genConnect.
Whether your company is new or long-standing, large or small, calling upon a leader that has navigated the often unpredictable roads of business may be the best decision you make.
“Unfortunately, in the world of business today, [mentorship] is probably not prevalent enough,” Otremba said. I would encourage every entrepreneur, every successful person, anybody that has ever been involved in anything in terms of leading people to really think hard about how they can step into the mentor role because it is so critical, particularly for young people.”
