All throughout history, people have required guidance, inspiration, and a perspective outside of their own in every venture one can seek. From the teacher and student relationships that were Plato and Aristotle, to the advisors and council of modern politics, you can always trace back to there being someone that has set a precedent for how things should be and then spreading that knowledge to further that field of expertise more and more quickly by helping others make expedited progress in whatever it is they do. In the world of entrepreneurship, it is no different.
Especially in business, it can be hard for anyone, whether just starting out, or being a seasoned expert to find their footing day after day. Luckily, having an experienced teacher who can teach you, open up your mind to opportunities you may be on the fence about, and even keep you accountable for your personal gripes and indiscretions are all but little and come in the form of success stories of people like Steven Hooley.
Steven Hooley is a technological innovator and business consultant who offers courses on every topic ranging from investing to social media management as well as having an extremely exclusive yet very advantageous private mentorship program.
Steven Hooley describes his solution to these glaring trials “I think there are standard challenges people face like how to actually get started, how to price their products/services, how to get customers, how to scale, and so on. A lot of that is just easier if you find a good mentor.” Steven also highlights some of his personal challenges that consisted of issues such as having a relatable, yet destructive ego that eventually led to a detrimental sense of competition for other businesses in his field which severely constrained his development as an entrepreneur. Steven credits the overcoming of this issue, to having found a wise mentor that would ground him when he felt his ego was taking over and show him the freedom of keeping a humble mindset that he would go on to appreciate and be able to use in every facet of his life even outside of business.
Having garnered the success, experience, and expertise that he has, Steven has taken a page from his own master’s book and decided to open up and take on his own forms of teaching practice. With a desire and focus on educating other aspiring entrepreneurs by way of developing his own mentorship program, consultation, and coaching, he has decided to project his own learned values onto the world of tech and business to show that anything is possible, and sometimes success can be reached with just a single phone call to someone you, look up to, trust, and have proven every ideal they hand down so you don’t have to do it yourself.
