As we think every current member has found, this organization is a friendly and helpful group of people! "Helpful" being the key word here. We have members with upwards of 30 years experience and members with less than a year experience. Here's where the word "helpful" comes in. "Helpful" as in Mentor.
Mentors can restore more windows vicariously through new window restoration businesses! And the more window restoration businesses out there in the big wide world, the more attention window restoration will get! This is a beautiful symbiotic relationship that helps all window restoration companies. Large and small!
In order to get the ball rolling for this mentor program, we need some mentors to step up to the plate. What qualifies one to be a mentor, you ask? Please consider the following:
Mentees will have responsibilities as well, such as:
1) Requesting assistance from a mentor would first require a letter of introduction through an e-mail to the chosen mentor.
2) Upon initial contact with a chosen mentor, the mentee will discuss and agree upon best times for contact.
3) It is the mentee's responsibility to initiate/terminate the relationship.
4) The mentee should be sensitive to where they are operating or starting up their business (completion).
