Management Mpowerment Associates loves entrepreneurs. We are all entrepreneurial ourselves, and we understand the joy, the pain, the loneliness and the exhilaration that comes with taking an idea and attempting to build something of substance from it. Our CEO, David Sorin, says:
“Entrepreneurship is like a healthy virus that infects the soul and the heart and the mind. It starts as the desire to see something different, something better, something new, come out of our efforts. It inspires a vision of a different world, or a different way of living in our world. It blossoms into a passion to create and grow, and yes, profit; and sometimes it explodes beyond the boundaries of logic, reason and sanity. And when it does, we don’t care. What a feeling!! What a ride!! The bumps in the road, the obstacles are all part of it. When we face up to them and find a way over them or around them, we enhance our essence and become more resilient and certainly more worldly wise.”
Why a Mentor?
Entrepreneurs need mentors who empathize with their situation. Entrepreneurs do not come in only one flavor. Our work with them covers the continuum of entrepreneurial thought and behavior. We work closely with individuals to help them develop the competencies they need to succeed. While they have many traits and competencies in common, they are not all in the same proportion. We look at competencies such as openness to new experiences, imagination, creativity, innovation, perseverance, passion, motivation, willingness to take risk, intuition, focus, problem solving, critical thinking, overcoming obstacles, resilience and credibility.
We work with our own custom Entrepreneurial Surveys to help individuals understand where their competencies lie and to let them see where they are on the Entrepreneurial Continuum.
