Whether you are starting up, scaling up or “selling up” your business or enterprise, our organisations and mentors will point you in the direction of the best and most relevant resources for you and will be able to give you practical, real life advice. We’re here to help you answer those questions you didn’t know who to ask or how. We’re ready to help you do business.
Small businesses are the life-blood of the UK economy and our organisations and mentors can help you on the way to making your business idea become a reality. We have mentors from specialist organisations who are focused on helping and networking many different kinds of people, so there will be someone to advise you whatever your age, background or personal circumstances.
Sometimes the biggest challenges in our business lives are personal ones. Although you may often feel alone in this as it’s not always something that can be discussed in a purely professional meeting, it’s likely that many of the business mentors here on horsesmouth have been in similar circumstances to you. Here you can search for and find the right mentors to help you deal with the family, health and relationship issues that can stand in the way of moving forward and achieving success.
We also believe that entrepreneurs and business people have much to gain from each other and from people who have “been there and done that” before them. So we want to encourage and support people to ask each other for personal and practical help in this safe online environment . We think everyone has something to give and gain.

I cleaned it out
Sowed it up
Planted a seed
