Having a business mentor made me a Rock Star! 

Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.

As someone who came into the entrepreneurial world with no sales background whatsoever. I think one of the most exciting and intimidating aspects of entrepreneurship is the learning curve. It is truly a proverbial double-edged sword … The “good news” is that there is always something NEW to learn. The “bad news” is that there is ALWAYS something new to learn! It is easy to feel overwhelmed. (This is especially true for those of us who are “fifty-something” and trying to develop new skills and reinvent oneself.)

The entrepreneurial world is very different from the JOB world. The entrepreneur doesn’t have a boss to hold him or her accountable and it is easy to get sidetracked in a world of multiple and competing priorities. A mentor not only gives you the information you need to move on and take your business to the next level, mentors offer a encouragement and support, a role model for success, and a broader vision undiminished by the day-to-day challenges. That is why I not only highly recommend, but I am personally and actively involved in OSI Rock Stars. In addition to providing cutting edge information on the latest developments in eBay selling / online retailing, OSI Rock Stars also offers me an ongoing source of inspiration to recharge my batteries and keep me connected to the bigger picture.
