Why is it important to have mentors like SCORE particularly in turbulent times?
My “Rich Dad” told me long ago, “If you’re the smartest person on your team, then your team is in trouble.” That’s why I have my team of advisors. I count on them to bring a variety of talent and experience to the table whenever we look at a business venture. By surrounding yourself with a good team, you can directly affect the outcome of your future financial success.

    You really have hit upon a vital key to success–diverse skill sets and a variety of advisors who help an entrepreneur add knowledge & expertise.

    ” . . . bring a variety of talent and experience to the table . . . ” and to “directly affect the outcome of your future financial success.”

    This is why I advocate having a mastermind group. It serves sort of the same purpose, particularly if you have a group where there is one person representing a top profession, e.g., one business lawyer, one tax laywer, one accountant, one marketer, one sales expert, etc.
