Popular wisdom on making mistakes would recommend avoiding them by carefully preparing and by learning from the mistakes that other people, less wise, than you make. A mentor will help with this for sure, especially if you are a startup entrepreneur. You simply don’t know for what to prepare and you need to hear the mistakes that somebody that is already successful did, just to avoid some pains on your way.
Of course you will still make some mistakes, but hopefully you’ll avoid the ones that might kill your business success dreams. A mentor will guide you, if you are brave enough to listen and humble enough to accept that you’ll make mistakes and it’s nothing to be ashamed of. We are all humans and to err is human, even in business. This being said, maybe the next video will help you decide on getting a mentor.
