Ron’s Tip of the Day Mentors

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Today I am looking at Mentors.

What is a Mentor?

A Mentor is a man or woman, usually a businessperson, who guides and makes suggestions to improve your business.

Do You Use a Mentor?

Yes, I do. When I started out marketing my books I started locally. I had initial success. But then we moved to Florida to take over the care of my mother-in-law. That quickly became a 24/7 job and impacted my business.

How Did it Help Impact Your Business?

It forced me to rely almost entirely on the internet. That meant no more Local Marketing, as that involves travel, meeting with bookstore owners or managers. Recently I have returned to Local Marketing as the primary model.

Has the Mentor Helped?

Yes. My Mentor is part of SCORE, an organization of volunteers. Let me say this, no matter your success or lack of success, you should consider SCORE. It is always good to have an extra pair of eyes on your business.

Tip of the Day: Take a look at SCORE.
