The Power of PeersBy Nina Kaufman, Esq.
My colleague, Geri Stengel of Ventureneer, conducted a survey several months ago that examined the importance of peer advisors to help entrepreneurs deal with their business challenges. Maybe it doesn’t come as any surprise but, according to the survey, the results clearly showed that business owners achieve greater success and ease in solving problems when they have peers and advisors with whom they can brainstorm.
There’s more to know about starting or running a business than one person could ever hope to keep in her head. So why try? When you read the survey results, make sure you see the summary of how Rob Levin, publisher of New York Enterprise Report, has successfully harnessed the power of peers.
I can’t begin to describe the extraordinary value I’ve received from my peer advisors. With some of them, we’re simply there for each other when we need a pick-me-up to get the week started on a rough Monday morning or want to kvetch about a difficult client. With others, I engage their professional services . . . and they engage mine. But because of the peer relationship, we have an even greater comfort level reaching out to each other (off the meter) for guidance in developing best practices for our businesses. Let’s face it, if you’re not having fun, you might as well go work for someone else.
