30 Aug Why mentors matter: Talking guidance and inspiration with Velocity Afrika
When you’re running your own business, having a mentor or someone to rely on for guidance can make all the difference. Aside from being a trusted adviser one can rely on for honest feedback, a mentor can help entrepreneurs see the bigger picture and nurture potential.

Financial, business, and personal decisions are often an entrepreneur’s sole responsibility. This may be daunting at times, but a mentor can be an invaluable source of advice and growth for small business owners.
