Today, many are paving their own path to success. Whether they start their own company or follow in the footsteps of their mother or father, the road to success is bumpy and paving your own path by yourself can seem impossible at times. That being said, leaning from a support group or even a person you look up to can be your shoulder to lean on when times get rough.

It is said that 90% of startups fail, and that is a very daunting statistic when entrepreneurs desire to start their own business and be their own boss. Entrepreneurs envision a life full of success but oftentimes fail to realize that this road is much harder than they anticipate. Starting a business from the ground up truly takes commitment, perseverance, and an unwavering desire to succeed, for this journey can become their life for many years to come.

However, how do successful business owners get to the position they are in today? Believe it or not, very few successful business owners did it by themselves. The majority of these business owners had the help and guidance of a mentor. This mentor’s advice and guidance were a catalyst for their success. This mentor likely encountered the same challenges along the way and their prior experiences gave them the ability to coach someone else through the hardships they may face along the way. 

“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” – Oprah

If you are interested in finding a mentor to guide you along your path to success, you may need to look within your own circle and select someone that can not only relate to you and your goals but also someone that can give you the proper guidance to increase your chances of succeeding.

There are many benefits to using a mentor, but finding the right mentor may take some time. Mentors can help entrepreneurs secure funding, help develop a successful company culture or even offer advice on how to mitigate workplace tension between employees. Below, you can find a guide created by Fundera that will not only help you find the perfect mentor but also statistics on how beneficial mentors can be.
