With a Little Help From My Friends
Women mentors increase sales with program
By Aisha Tejani/Small Business BC
omen's Enterprise Centre (WEC), a leading business resource for women starting, purchasing or growing a small business in British Columbia, announced the results of a recent survey on the effect of mentorship on women-owned businesses.
WEC collected responses from over 100 business owners across the province, representing a wide cross-section of industries and sectors.
"This survey is an excellent example of why mentorship is so effective,"
says Aisha Tejani, Project Coordinator of MentorshipBC. "Most assume that
mentorship only helps the mentees, but it is tremendously beneficial for
both parties involved. Mentees help their mentors by introducing them to
business contacts, teaching them new skills and increasing their
self-confidence. It's a win-win solution to overcoming barriers to success
for both mentors and mentees."
