How Mentoring Helps


What successes have the SBMS Experienced Business Mentors had?

SBMS was founded in 1986 and has mentored in excess of 20,000 businesses in that time. We regularly survey our clients on our performance to ensure we are offering pertinent programs and are providing good service to our clients. But don’t take our word for it, please go to the Testimonials tab to read what some of our customers have said about our help to them and their businesses .


Are you working IN your business or ON your business?

The majority of small businesses, by their very nature, work IN their business at the exclusion of working ON their business. This is a well used phrase but extremely apt and describes the vast majority of the businesses that we mentor. A Mentor can help you to work ON your business, challenging your perceptions and helping to resolve your issues.  


What do the SBMS Experienced Business Mentors offer?

Our Mentors, as seen on the Mentor Directory, are business people with years of experience who want to give something back to help small businesses. As we are a not-for-profit organisation we can offer mentoring at an affordable level that is within the reach of most small businesses.


How is a Mentor going to help me?

All small businesses have issues that need to be assessed and decided on. Frequently there is nobody other than those directly in the business with whom to discuss these issues. A Mentor can bring an outside and fresh perspective to the issues and aid in the decision process. They also bring clarity and help you focus on the issues that matter to assist you reaching your potential.
