Know the difference between a mentor, a coach, a consultant or advisor.

Advisers counsel, coaches help develop a specific skill or competency, consultants recommend, and mentors guide and motivate.

Consultants, coaches and advisors generally focus on knowledge and know-how. They master a specific area and are paid to carry out or to help accomplish a mandate or a set of objectives tied directly to their field of expertise and designed to produce short-term results for a business.  

Mentors from Réseau M are qualified and experienced entrepreneurs who volunteer to regularly guide another entrepreneur over a longer term. The mentorees not only acquire more entrepreneurial savvy, but also learn to take a step back to better assess their options and thus move on to make their own decisions.
