Start-ups and businesses of any size can get huge benefits from having a business mentor.

It is essential that your mentor complements your attitude, understands your business and can hold you accountable to keep on track with your business plans.

A mentor can also help to open doors for you with their contacts and wider industry experience.

Mentors don’t charge fees.

They offer their time, experience and contacts to enable businesses they work with to grow and thrive.

I have been a member of the Queensland Government Mentoring for Growth (M4G) Panel since 2014, providing insight and guidance on business planning and financial modeling issues questions to early-stage businesses.

I am also on the Mentor Panel of Fashion Capital in London, providing business planning insights to their students and fashion industry alumni.

In addition, I work with a maximum of three private mentees at any one time and share with them the excitement of moving their businesses into new levels of success.

The reflected glory of their achievements is my reward!
