How does mentoring work?

Mentoring is more than giving advice, or passing on experience. It’s about motivating and empowering you to identify your own issues and goals, and helping you find ways of resolving or reaching them by understanding and respecting different ways of working.

I work with you to identify the sort of life you want to lead and what this means in terms of the business you create.

Businesses may be similar but business owners are all different. Understanding what motivates you, your values, and how you behave enables me to help you create a plan and achieve your goals.

My network of experienced business owners who are experts in their own field brings a unique and hugely valuable addition to the help, insights and connections you access when you work with me.

I only work with people who share my values and usually my sense of humour so that working together is a delight as well as hugely satisfying.

As a social entrepreneur I faced what felt like an insurmountable challenge of how to move my business forward given specific and unyielding limitations that I had. I engaged Ann to help me sharpen our focus forward and then drill down into a detailed business plan with specific deliverables, timelines and financial forecasts.

I set this up as a 13 week challenge with Ann to help ensure that I succeeded. Meeting with Ann every week helped me stay on track and allowed time for exploring as well as drilling down into detail. Now at the end of the 13 weeks, I have a vision for the clinic supported with a detailed, comprehensive and realistic business plan and we are ready to move our social mission forward in a stronger and more powerful way than I was able to anticipate only 13 weeks ago.  ThorA Rain Founder / Director The Helpful Clinic
