“What is the missing link between a promising businessperson and a successful one? Mentoring – Giving people advice on how they can best achieve their goals. If you ask any successful businessperson, they will always have had a great mentor at some point. If you want success then it takes hard work, hard work and more hard work. But it also takes a little help along the way. If you are determined and enthusiastic then people will support you. If you are looking to make your way in business, find a mentor. If you are in a position to share the skills you have learned, give something back by becoming a mentor yourself” Richard Branson.
