Letter: Mentoring at the service of future entrepreneurs | Letters to the Editor
The November 13, 2016 edition of Entrepreneur Magazine published an article titled “Learn, Earn and Come Back: The 3 Stages of a Fulfilling Life” (https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/284706). The author summarized the stages by explaining that in the beginning of your life you are learning, in the middle of your life/career you are making money, the third stage, and in my opinion the most fulfilling, is to come back – help others.
January is National Mentoring Month. It’s time to recognize the efforts of the millions of people across the country who volunteer to become mentors. It could also be a good time for you to think about coming back and helping others.
One such opportunity is SCORE (https://www.score.org/). SCORE is proud to have the largest network of volunteer and expert business mentors in the country. We help thousands of entrepreneurs start and grow their small businesses every year.
