Please note that mentors cannot make your teaching or business successful. They can not tell you how to run your business financially or strategically, nor are they counsellors or advocates. Their role is to offer guidance and support, help you clarify your weaknesses and strengths, refer you to suitable resources and other experts, share their knowledge and advise around their area of expertise and experience.
