Jorge, did you reach out to a specific mentor or are you waiting for someone to contact you? When you signup here as an entrepreneur - you're not really 'guaranteed' that a mentor will connect with you. As a mentor myself, it's up to me to take time to sort through and find people that I can assist ... on my schedule. So I apologize if that might have been a little misleading.

Morning Jorge

The answer Shawn provided is correct. If you go through the profiles of mentors and see someone who has written down that they can assist with business plan development, you can send them an email. There are so many mentors waiting to help, you just need to do your research.

Good luck with it.

You are welcome. I would encourage you not to wait for a mentor but to get into action now. The internet is full of resources in the business area and you can start developing your business plan today.

Keep the plan simple. Think of it as a guide to where you want to go. State your goals, strategies and what you have to do to start.

The plan evolves as you learn about your business.

There are also many programs on television and on the internet which can be your mentor. Look at what they are doing and think about what you want and need to go.

I don't know how long you've been in business however in the long term, everything you do will help you to develop skills and abilities and you then link them.

Have you considered writing key bits down? I talk to my clients and encourage them to purchase a work book and detail their goals, their successes and what they've done to achieve them. This can be a powerful resource because you've always got something to look back on which reminds you as to what you're done and achieved.

And the terrific thing about being in business is that if you apply the business lessons to your own life, you continue to evolve as a person. Great thing:)

All the best, Merydith
