    Glasgow Chamber of Commerce run a mentoring scheme so why not try there? Even if they don't have a scheme you could attend some of their networking events and see who you meet. If you are in a remote location then you could try Linked In or another form of business/social media. In either event, It's important to get a good match, though. M.

    Hi eltonpiko, yes I've heard of the Seychelles, a very beautiful place by all accounts, maybe I'll be lucky enough to travel there some day. Do you require any particular skills, knowledge or expertise from the mentor? What particular aspects of your business are you seeking assistance with?

    maybe one day you can visit the Seychelles island.I require mentoring for financial decision making, budgeting and management. generally business related maters and especially new ventures. the mentor must have some experience in successful business venture.

    Are there any government funded enterprise support agencies in your area? If so they may be able to provide you with some advice or access to a mentor. Also do you use the services of an Accountant, a good Accountant might be all you need?

    Hi, its nice to meet you. Even I need a business mentor, because I want to open a restaurant business.
    Yesterday, I visited the website 2misi.com and noticed that its a good place to learn all about buying a business online. You could try checking it out.
    Good Luck.
