Business mentors offer guidance and support to maximize business growth. Research shows that 70 percent of small businesses who receive mentoring services survive for five years or more — twice as long as companies without a mentor. Not all business mentors are the same, however. Only mentors that use the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS)® — a set of concepts that optimize vision, traction and company health — provide you with the tools you need to jump-start your business. Using an EOS mentor is an effective way to organize your business, invest in strategic growth and improve accountability.
