  • Find a Mentor: Apply for a local business mentor

    If you are starting out in business a mentor may be helpful. You might want to make a big leap into a new related service or into a new market place. The essential value of an advisor or mentor is that they’re external to the business. They’re objective and not influenced by the day to day issues which are blocking the clear thinking needed to assess the business.

Coming to networking events in the town of Bassendean allows us to open our eyes up to what other businesses exist. There are so many home-based businesses that you don't see on the High Street. Meeting up allows us to discuss cross-promotion opportunities. I think that's great for growing all businesses in Bassendean.
