You're a Mentor Too -- Even if You Don't Realize It!

Great article on mentoring by Indie Business blog's Donna Marie. No matter what your age or your experience level, you can always reach back and give someone a hand.

If you are an Indie Business owner, rest assured that the next generation of entrepreneurs is watching you. They are looking to see you try new things, to observe what works and what doesn’t work. They’re watching what you say and what you do. They’re receiving guidance and direction from you when they visit your website, your blog, your Twitter page, your Facebook page, your YouTube page.

I think you're a mentor even if you're not an independent business owner.

During difficult economic times when it seems almost impossible to find a job of your dreams, helping others along the way is actually the key to making progress. Like the old saying "What goes around, comes around."

Job Hunters in Northeast Ohio

You may be interested in this link to the website.

The advanced manufacturing employment portal served Northeast Ohio employers, job seekers and students from June 2007 through December 2008. MAGNET thanks the hundreds of employers and job seekers who have used the database over the past 18 months.

I know that the unemployment figures in Northeast Ohio range from 9.3% in Summit County to 14.3% in Trumbull County.

Good luck to everyone searching for jobs and to the employers who are trying to stay in business when orders for products and services are reduced as a result of the economic downturn.

This may be the time for starting a business. I believe I heard from someone that the Chinese symbol for Change is also the same symbol for Opportunity.
