Thoughts from a current mentor

"It’s fulfilling to meet people who are starting out, or are at a cross road in their business and to help make a difference to the future of that business.”

"Every time I talk through methods with a client it reminds me of the steps I need to take in my own ventures.  Not only do I get a buzz from seeing them increase business but I apply the same recommendations to what I am doing, which for any business is continuously necessary.”

"I received invaluable help when I started my own business and it is wonderful to now give back to others on the same journey."

- Ann Mayer
