Business mentoring is one of the very best ways to improve your business knowledge and drive your business forward, but how do you find one that's right for you? And how do you find one when you're starting out and have limited (or no) money to spend on it? Of course there are mentorship programmes and masterminds where you can pay to learn from those at the top of the game and we absolutely recommend doing that when you have the finances for it, nothing will "upscale" your business faster than working with mentors and coaches on your self development. How can you do it without spending though? And how do you chose the right one for you?  

This week is "Work From Home Week" and I mentioned at the start of the week that I would come back to this.
There's a myth that working from home is full of distractions and is loads of fun. Or that as a self-employed person you have to work long hours, give up your social life, family time and pour everything into your business.

For a very long time I hated LinkedIN. I mean, really hated it. It felt like a very stuffy "shirt and tie" environment and that if I wanted to be a part of that community I would need to "tone-down" my natural joie-de-vivre. Well. I dunno what those guys at Microsoft have been doing on LinkedIn but all of a sudden it's become a really great place to connect with real people and build strong connections. Unlike Instagram and Facebook pages (which I still love don't get me wrong), the connections you make on LinkedIn are already pre-qualified, even if they are people trying to sell you something, they're in business! They're not there dicking around liking lots of pictures or liking but unfollowing your pages, they're there to do BUSINESS.
