Who's Helped You Reach Business Success?

When it comes to Business Success, I am reminded of the fact that success is rarely a solo endeavour. More often than not, there have been many people involved in the advancement of a business venture. While they may not always be seen in the ownership structure or on the payroll, the input, direction and efforts of many who are outside of the firm have often contributed significantly to the success of the venture.

So my question is: Who's helped you reach "Business Success"?

Keeping that thought in mind, the celebration of success is also very important. And what a wonderful time of celebration we had on the evening of Friday, June 24, 2011 as many gathered to honour Pat Klak, Executive Director at Leduc-Nisku Economic Development Authority. Retiring from this role, Pat has been a terrific role model, a tireless team builder and an outstanding leader in her community. In the midst of all of the accolades that evening, I lost count of how many times the word "Mentor" was mentioned in the various tributes. Mentorship has obviously been important in Pat's life and it has been very evident in her style of helping others to find success.

I was pleased to also reconnected with Grant McDowell, Lead Pastor at the Leduc Alliance Church. Grant has been actively involved in community development. Just a few months ago, Grant shared his unique perspectives on Mentorship with me, which can be seen on my YouTube Channel at
