Posted by Matt Roberge on Jul 16, 2015 7:30:00 AM

Wow, I have gone fly fishing a lot this year already.

Lots of people came up to fish this year, including a few employees and even a client. It's been a blast. Here are the business lessons I have learned from the river this year.

Why Every Small Business Owner Needs a Mentor

Posted by Matt Roberge on Feb 17, 2015 7:30:00 AM

I am a firm believer that every small business owner needs a mentor. Even the best business owners have questions and need support at some point. Let's take a look at professional athletes for a second to get a different perspective.

Have you ever noticed how many coaches and mentors professional athletes have? The best athletes in the world, the ones at the top of their game have a plethora of coaches. A typical professional athlete has an entire coaching staff to rely on. Additionally many of them have an individual trainer or coach. They have someone to rely on when they go into a slump and someone to give them a different perspective. A good coach will pass on their years of knowledge that they have learned from their own career and experience in coaching.

What can a good coach do for your small business?
