What do professional athletes and many successful people have in common that contributes to their success? They have coaches and mentors to guide them to their goals.
Recent research from Kabbage sought to uncover just how important mentors are to small business success. In a survey of 200 small business owners, almost all (92%) of respondents found a mentor to be critical to their success, even though only 22% were mentored when they were a start-up.
When asked about survey results, Amy Zimmerman, Head of People Operations at Kabbage, says “mentors expand your viewpoint, helping you see multiple perspectives to solve problems and from my experience give you the ability to collaborate and workshop ideas with a trusted source.” Further adding “I liken mentors to coaches, it’s a relationship to which many of us can relate.”
If small business owners experienced this level of success with mentors, what can you realize with a financial coach?
