Finding a Mentor or Coach For You
“The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” — Steven Spielberg As entrepreneurs, finding someone that you can trust and look up to for support, advice and guidance in your business can be difficult. It has been said that finding a great mentor is like finding a great friend - it is hard to advertise for a great friend! In this month's Entrepreneurs Anonymous we will help you find the qualities to look for in a mentor, how to engage with a mentor and how to make the most of the relationship with your mentor. We will also explore the differences between coaching and mentoring and the formal and informal ways of engaging with these supports for you. We will have 3 speakers who have professional and practical experience of the value and importance of mentorship and coaching in building a successful career and business life. Our MC Max Thiel will interview the speakers individually for around 20 minutes each and then the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions. We will be exploring questions such as: How do I find a mentor for my business and career? How do I know they are the right fit for me? How do I approach a mentor and what do I ask them to do ? Should I pay for mentoring? If so, how much? Can I have more than one mentor? Is this a good idea? What is the difference between mentoring and coaching? What does a good mentor do? What are the qualities of a good mentor? What can I expect from a business coach? What are the qualities of a good coach? There will be around 60 friendly people at this event, and it is always overbooked, so do arrive early to secure your seat. We can't wait to see you there! Speakers Conor McCarthy Conor is a former software engineer, turned festival director and entrepreneur who coaches with Seth Godin's team on the altMBA and Bootstrappers Workshops. He loves to innovate and accelerate with professionals as they become change agents for the future. As a coach, he is in direct contact with ordinary people who do extraordinary things, and he uses his multi-disciplinary background to help people move forward on the work that matters to them.

What we're about

• Are you interested in becoming an entrepreneur and would like to meet like-minded people in the same situation?

• Do you already have your own business but enjoy meeting like-minded people, learn new things and exchange best practices?

If yes, then you should join Entrepreneurs Anonymous! We usually have guest speakers who share their expertise and experience following networking in a nice setting.

The name Entrepreneurs Anonymous could stand for being addicted to entrepreneurship and having an urgent need to get group support for it. But actually Entrepreneurs Anonymous is more about providing a safe place with like-minded people where entrepreneurship can be explored. Entrepreneurs Anonymous events started in Dublin, Ireland in 2011 as accountability group by former students of an entrepreneurship course. The interest for the group grew and now social events with guest speakers are organized every last Tuesday of the month. With a membership increase by 10% each month it was quickly realized last Tuesday-events were simply just not enough for the Anonymous Entrepreneurs.

B.U.I.L.D was set up to offer more opportunities for Entrepreneurs to learn from each other. B.U.I.L.D stands for Businesses United for Innovation, Learning and Development and is about organizing workshops, seminars, business clinics and networking events for all kinds of entrepreneurs. So far B.U.I.L.D events like the Gigonomy Panel discussion, Customer Journey, Speed Business Networking and the Free Business clinic have been organized.
