So what is business mentoring? I remember when I first hired my business coach a few years ago I didn’t really understand what the role was, though I knew she would add value to my business and life. My uncertainty was mostly due to the fact that I was naive to the world of business coaching. I want you to be certain of the value I’ll be adding to you as well as be certain you know exactly what to expect from business mentoring.

What business mentoring is and isn’t:
A mentorship is defined as “the guidance provided by a mentor, especially an experienced person in a company or educational institution.” (Source: google dictionary).
There are a few practical differences between a business mentor and a business coach:
What does the relationship look like?
Mentors, Teachers, Counselors, and Coaches all develop relationships with their clients, but they are uniquely different types of relationships. My desire in mentoring is to establish a relationship that is both professional and personal. I can’t deny who I am in the professional space and I’m created to connect on a personal level with clients that I work with. While my highest goal is to help you grow during our time working together, I am also looking to grow with you because I know that all my clients have valuable things to add to my life and business as well. This is not a one-sided relationship, but rather a mutual partnership in the pursuit of growth.
Through our video calls we will discuss your business vision and mission, goals, core values, dreams, the people you’re called to serve, your season of life, your unique combination of gifts, talents, resources, and more. If you aren’t currently clear on any of these we will work on them together. I also commit to continually lead you to the Truth in scripture and the presence of Holy Spirit to guide your steps and give you individual solutions for your business and life.
After working with me:
Mentors, coaches, teachers, and counselors are all valuable and necessary. It’s up to you to decide which role suits your goals, needs, and desires best.
