New Business Mentorship Program Celebrates 5 Years
Huddle recently wrote an interesting article about a mentorship program for new businesses. The entrepreneurs mentoring new business owner have successfully been guiding the mentees for 5 years now. The program, called Oasis, was put into place by NBCC in June of 2014. Over 100 new business owners have taken part in the program, including Jessica Goguen.
“[Having a mentor is] so important because you get to, as an entrepreneur, not only bounce your ideas [off someone], but you also have a soundboard. You have someone you can count on when you’re, at times, insecure.” – Jessica Goguen (as quoted from Huddle)
