Report on Our First Business Mentoring Program

Submitted by greenamerica on July 19, 2010


Based on member demand, this spring we launched a pilot mentoring program. Due to its success, a second program will launch in January. What did we learn?

From Cara Saunders: “This was an excellent way to connect with an experienced business owner who could provide me with guidance, support, and a wealth of great ideas.”

Cara was among five pairs that were matched this spring in the Mentoring Program. Led by Joan Friedlander, owner of Lifework Business Partners and GBN volunteer with staffer Tish Kashani, each pair developed their own goals, from re-branding to new product launching and attracting capital.

Beth Remmes reflected on her experience, “I had the chance to collaborate and take steps towards my goals… it was so energizing and affirmed I was on the right path.”

A second mentoring program will launch in January. If you are interested in participating, contact Tish.
