Zoom Dive Recordings | How to find the right mentor for your creative business

Running a creative business is a journey filled with twists and turns. Along the way, you’ll encounter obstacles that require you to reassess your path. That’s where a business mentor becomes invaluable, serving as your guide and compass, pointing you towards success.

Countless successful entrepreneurs have sought guidance, inspiration, and a healthy dose of challenge from a mentor. Take Mark Zuckerberg, who was mentored by none other than Steve Jobs. A mentor provides not just advice but also encouragement and challenge. They ensure you stay accountable to your goals.

One woman who understands the many benefits a strong mentoring relationship can bring is Andreea Magdalina, CEO and founder of She Said. Andreea is known for her expertise in connecting and fostering communities in the music industry.
