The reality experienced when a small business is operating is often quite different from the original expectations of its owners. Often people start a business because they have a technical or creative skill or an innovative idea, but may have little start-up knowledge or are without general management experience.
Getting bogged down with day to day issues can make you lose sight of your own dream. That’s where having the expertise and knowledge of a Business Mentor can help get those business ideas of the ground and running!
Business Mentors New Zealand is an independent not-for-profit organisation founded in 1991 by business people, for business people.
