How do I get a mentor that will guide and advise on how to structure a startup business from both legal, operational effectiveness and strategic planning perspective?
The best way to find the right mentor is find someone who has already SUCCESSFULLY achieved what you are trying to accomplish.
Ask around and if needed, go into a business you view as successful and meet the owner.
Ask this person if you can “take them to lunch once a month because you would like their advice on how to start a business.”
Most successful people like to share how they succeeded.
