“There were, of course, the valuable aspects of the experience that I had expected, like focused and relevant assistance for solving the problems my business was facing, which was simply priceless to have. What I hadn’t expected was that for the year of mentorship that I was given, I felt bolder and braver to take steps that I may not have taken otherwise.”
