Mentors never misguide the entrepreneur so make sure you learn as much as you can from them.

Keep Sharing

If an entrepreneur keeps the mentor up to date with whats going on in business then mentor will be keener to help you out. A mentor cannot look into operations all day long so it is essential that you keep him/her up to date.


A mentor is someone who is there whenever you need so it is essential that you appreciate his/her efforts from time to time so that he/she doesnt feel taken for granted.
