Every entrepreneur starts their business with a perspective to expand it from time to time. No one is born to be an entrepreneur as everyone learns from the existing ways of doing business and proper knowledge. With time an entrepreneur to grows but still the need of a mentor cannot be replaced. A mentor is a guide that supports an entrepreneur both mentally and emotionally.

In India, the number of small businesses keeps on rising but they are not seeing the growth that they expected. The reason is lack of innovation and lack of change in the way of doing business. Now startups are emerging in the business ecosystem because they prefer guidance from experienced players, unlike small businesses.

Small businesses need to understand that besides friends, family and peers, a mentor are also essential for business growth. Mentors have actually experienced all the business challenges before so they know the way out which could help small business grow. They have made mistakes as an entrepreneur and know what is best for a business to do in all types of situations. So if you are searching for a mentor then make sure that you find the right one.

How to find the right mentor?
