Pay it forward and become a mentor! Was there someone who helped steer you in the right direction as you built your business? This doesn’t mean you are at someone’s beck and call but it’s not hard to provide an ear for feedback or lend a supporting shoulder to.
Provide honest feedback without being hurtful. Be respectful.
Don’t be shy about collaborating. Everything doesn’t have to be a competition.
Have a teachable moment by sharing your knowledge. It may remind you of another idea or reaffirm a point.
Be courageous and reach outside your comfort zone. This could be a different age group, culture or line of work.
So reach out wherever you are and turn this into a resource!
