Here are the topics you will learn about in this chapter:
#Clarity - why it's important and how to get it
Especially in the beginning, when you explore all kinds of options and possibilities, you may find yourself in an "analysis paralysis" state - that means that you get caught between scenarios and emotions that prevent you from acting and reaching your goal. That's why you need clarity. In this chapter you will understand better why it is important and how to get it.
#Consultancy, mentoring and coaching
What the role of each of these tools is, how you can use them when you are an entrepreneur and how you know which one you actually need.
#How a business mentor helps you
When you find yourself stuck, the experience of another entrepreneur who has faced similar situations will be of great help to you. In this chapter you will also learn about what to expect when working with a mentor.
If you want to grow, it's good to know what acceleration options are available to you: from strategic learning, to participating in programs and accessing the right funding at the right time.
Governance - the structure that runs a company - can influence the investments you want to make and your business development strategies. That's why it's great to get started with all the information related to what a healthy structure looks like.
