Focus, Inspiration and Direction
I always read comments from courses like these and sub-consciously think
‘yeah you're inspired for the first 5 minutes and then it's back to square
one”. OMG, how wrong could I have been! !! The focus, inspiration and
direction I have gained from being a part of the MentorNet program are
impossible for me to grasp at this point - but it's BIG 1)

The support of other business women and a Mentor
Before MentorNet my business had been plodding along for 4 years. Now.
coming towards the end of the joumey I have a structure for my business
plan thatl understand and use.
I have learnt concepts and techniques I had never considered, such as
blogging to keep in touch with current and past clients. And strategies and
systems I knew about but didn't fully understand such as ﬁnancial forecasts.
By having the support of other business women and my fabulous mentor I
have taken steps I was previously too scared to do to enable the growth of
my business, such as employment and setting ﬁnancial goals.
Every step of this journey has been an educational one and I look forward to
keeping in contact with the other participants. Thank-you!
