Running a business is a very lonely journey. As an entrepreneur you are expected to maneuver a lot of challenges by yourself. Sometime you feel like giving up because you feel no one understands what you are going through, no one cares.
Sometime you wish you had someone who is experienced to guide you, motivate you and teach certain things. Or sometimes you wish you had someone who can check your blind spots for you.
Building a successful business is a team effort. Successful businesses are not built by longer ranger entrepreneurs or individual hero entrepreneur.
Successful entrepreneurs surrounds themselves with great team of advisers.
Big companies have Board of Directors, as an emerging entrepreneur you can also have your own sounding Board of Advisors.
