Executive Mentor Services can help you grow your business. One of the most exciting and rewarding experiences for any entrepreneur is to successfully start and operate their own business.
But they often don’t know where to start and the realization that they may fail often discourages them from trying. Many entrepreneurs just don’t know how to approach it and end up making terrible mistakes and often lose a lot of their own money as a result.
It doesn’t have to be this way. EntreDot has a process that has discrete steps and verifiable checkpoints that help you determine if you are on the right track or not. If you are going to fail, it is good to know it as soon as possible so you can minimize your losses. Starting from a raw idea for a business, coupled with guidance from a mentor, our process takes an entrepreneur through a logical stepwise refinement of a business idea all the way to ultimate commercialization of the business.
Speaking from 14 years of experience in working with established as well as startup businesses, coupled with over 40 years of business experience, I would be glad to speak to groups who are interested in entrepreneurship and what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur and business owner.
