Mentoring: Helping New Businesses Thrive
Looking to start your own business? The rewards are certainly appealing. To be your own boss. To manage your own time. To take charge of your earning potential. However, it’s worth doing your homework and facing some hard, cold facts.
It may surprise you to learn that one in two start-ups never see their fifth birthday. And only a third of new businesses ever celebrate ten years1. Wow! That’s a sad end to a lot of new dreams. Heaps of time, energy and money squandered … and that’s not even taking into account the blow to one’s confidence that occurs when a new venture goes belly up.
Now, ready for some good news?
The likelihood of success doubles when a new venture is allied to a business mentor in its first six months.
Yes, you’re twice as likely to succeed in a new business if you work with a mentor, especially someone who knows your industry well. Someone who offers support and guidance. Someone who is committed to you in excellence.
Personalised Mentoring: Building Thriving Businesses
This is the reason our franchise model is built on the strength of mentoring. From our own rich experience, we walk with you every step of the way. This is how we phrase it in our Franchise Brochure under the heading, “Beyond Training: Personalised Mentoring”:
Our goal is to provide you with some of the most comprehensive training in the industry and to also provide regular guidance to ensure your success. We will work closely with you over the first 12 months so that you know how to manage seasonal tasks that can only be practised at specific times of the year. You will also enjoy ongoing training both in-house and from third-party professionals.
You’re not alone. And you won’t be left floundering. Your success is important to us and as we are only building a small team, we are readily available to assist you.”
The value of business mentoring is being discovered and applied in numerous industries today. Friends of ours in Melbourne, for example, run a business mentoring program specifically for newborn photographers. Like us, their goal is to improve the odds of success, to empower new start-ups, to help new business owners thrive.
That’s the heart behind an Allingtons Franchise. We aim to empower you to be your own boss, to manage your own time, to take charge of your earning potential. To run a thriving business that gives you a great deal of joy and one in which you can take pride in.
