  • Mentors use personal stories and lessons from past experiences to advise, direct and provide perspective to the mentee.
  • Mentors support the entrepreneur as he/she develops the business or help the intrapreneur as he/she chooses a career path and develops the skills required to be successful in the career path of choice.
