Business mentors can provide guidance and support to help business owners make informed strategic decisions and stay focused on the end goal. They can also help you move forward providing advice and feedback on what steps to take to reach the ultimate success.
But have you ever considered asking your accountant to be your mentor?
Why your accountant is the ideal mentor
The ideal mentor needs to be someone who implicitly understands your business journey and the motivations behind this. They should also be able to help you take a step back and view challenges through fresh, objective eyes.
If you only regard your accountant as someone who files your tax returns, you could be missing out on a huge opportunity!
We’re experienced business owners with a broad scope of experience, solid knowledge of different industry sectors and working practices, and access to a significant network of other professionals.
In other words, your Pathfinder Solutions accountant could be the mentor you didn’t know you needed.
We’ve a genuinely in-depth knowledge of your organisation, so we’re perfectly placed to offer you meaningful advice to guide your business journey and help you push your skills and capabilities.

Being the owner of a business can be hard, and sometimes it can feel pretty lonely. A business owner has to grow and evolve along with their company. Having regular mentoring catch-ups could be the ideal way to progress, offload concerns, and look for new inspiration. Moreover, having someone to guide your business journey could give you an essential competitive edge and boost performance.
