Benefits of Mentoring
Building a business is not easy, but the good news is that the benefits of mentoring mean you don’t have to do it alone. One of the major keys to success is surrounding yourself with people who are strong in the areas you are not. This will not only propel your business forward, but will bring personal growth.
I have always been a big believer in not reinventing the wheel. There is no need to figure everything out on our own. One of the benefits of mentoring is you learn from someone who has already accomplished what you are trying to achieve. Avoiding the mistakes and frustrations that others have already discovered and worked through can save time, money and energy.
Accountability can be a major key to ‘more implementing’ and ‘less procrastinating’. Setting goals and laying out plans is good, but keeping on schedule, and on track, can be an entirely different thing. Agreeing to be accountable to someone and knowing they will be checking your progress and direction often births a new level of motivation and desire for accomplishment.
Other major benefits of mentoring are an outside perspective and encouragement. Very often, to achieve more, all that is needed is permission to make that big jump you otherwise may be afraid to make on your own. Being able to actually move forward instead of just thinking about it, even in the face of others thinking you’ve gone off the deep end, can transform your business and you as a person.
Clear boundaries are an absolute must in any business, or you could find yourself feeling resentful towards yourself, others, and your business. A key benefit of mentoring is having an outsider to discuss and help you set the perimeters of your business. The best mentor without hesitation will hold you accountable to the limits you have preset and make them a habit. This may include time spent with clients, a definition of what your responsibility will be in a partnership, or just simply what you are willing to tolerate day-to-day.
