I feel my business is going nowhere due to finance issues, how can you help?

I would like to be a mentor, what is required of me and how do I sign up?

We are delighted that you would like to help by lighting the way for a fellow entrepreneur. We are looking for mentors that are willing to ask questions and challenge the new entrepreneur to exceed in their goals. You should be willing to share your own experiences and help uncover new opportunities. Your role is as an advisor, not to run someone else's company.

Being a mentor should not create a burden for you. Once you've established a connection and there is interest from both sides. Your input by email and simple phone conversation should suffice. Setting a schedule and limits on time will more than likely lead to a better long-term realtionship.

Please send us an email at joharsplace@gmail.com with your area of expertise and a bit about your work experience.
