  18. 18. 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! Stephanie Lee - Alive Personal Training IBNJOIUSN
