Get a mentor, be a mentor
In cooperation with VGA, Longwood Small Business Development Center is developing Peer2Peer XChange, a mentoring network for new business owners. The network will be developed in Fall 2014 to coincide with and supplement course offerings.
If you're starting a new business, a mentor can be invaluable. Being mentored by someone who has already made the journey you're embarking on lets you learn from their mistakes as well as their successes.
If you're a successful business owner, sharing your experience and knowledge with a new entrepreneur will not only be personally fulfilling, but will also help improve your community through helping to create more successful independent businesses.
Stay tuned for more information about the upcoming Peer2Peer XChange, and for information about how you can become a mentor or work with a mentor.
