The idea of finding mentors is an old one but, oddly, it is one that many people neglect. Whether it’s the thought that we can/should do it ourselves or the fear that no one will think us worthy of mentoring, most of us don’t acknowledge the need for support and how finding support can help us achieve our goals.
When you are starting your own business, project, venture, whatever it is, you will need to be around like-minded people. People who understand what you are going through will be the best sounding board, and are usually eager to share their experiences and give a word of advice.
This support can take many forms. It can be as formal as joining the appropriate association and using your networking skills, or as informal as tapping into the online community of fellow risk-takers.
If you are developing an app for the first time, there are many parts of the design, development and implementation process that will seem complex and overwhelming or just far enough out of your knowledge base to make you uncomfortable.
Tapping into a network of resources can help you through every stage. Also, more importantly, looking to your friends and acquaintance and tapping into their achievements and hidden talents can also give help where you least expected it.
