Should I Seek Out Experts When Setting Up A Business?

May 13, 2015

Dear Cathy:

Do every business need a mentor, business consultants or business coaches?  Learning More About Business, Minnesota

Dear Learning More About Business: 

Yes every business needs to brainstorm with mentors, business consultants and coaches along with legal, financial, and marketing advisors who might also be investors.  

Most potential business owners don’t want to admit that they don’t know everything. They are afraid to brainstorm with others especially those smarter than them.  They rather "Fake It Until You Make It!"  For some this will mean never telling the truth about themselves or their businesses and if they keep faking it -- they will eventually become perpetual liars.

Don’t get stuck thinking that you have to do everything yourself.  If you are the smartest person in your group, you should get another group.  Always, always, always brainstorm with people smarter than you.  Asking for help doesn’t mean you are weak, it simply means you want to remain strong so let others know you need help.
