"Golf as a metaphor for life"

It has often occured to me that getting through life is very much like playing golf. You can play a great tee shot and be sitting smack in the middle of the fairway feeling all is well in the world. Then you make a mistake, get distracted or just get a bad bounce - and you hit trouble. You might find yourself in very thick rough or in a deep bunker - even out of bounds. Sometimes you need to go back to the tee and start over again. But there are usually people to help you look for your ball or coach you on that tricky rescue shot. It might take a while, but you get back on the fairway eventually and keep heading towards that flag. Life is just like golf - it's just about trying to stay on the fairway as much as you can, trying not to make too many mistakes, learning to ask for help when you're in trouble and learning to offer it to others who need it.

"3 Key Business Lessons"

1. Customers have a shortage of time and a myriad of choices - make sure you are easy to do business with.

2. Make it your number 1 rule not to give away something which will provide value to your customer and that you genuinely believe he should pay for. If you must do it, make sure you get something back which YOU value.

3. Your best sales resource is your customers.  First, set their expectations at a level you can consistently achieve - and then consistently exceed it. They will tell others about you.

I am very lucky to have found your website. Recently I wrote about a problem which I face very often.... There were 10 responses from 10 mentors. They have really explained to me and made me understand that I do not have any problem. Your services are wonderful and I am very much thankful to all of you.

I have been mentoring on HM for 18 months. I really enjoy it & hopefully I am helping other people. Recently I posted my my first 'request for a mentor'. I have been completely bowled over by the response. So many people taking their time & making the effort to offer constructive advice in a friendly polite manner. For me it completely validates the intent behind HM. It reminds me how many good, helpful people there are out there. Thanks for providing such a great service.
'I called out for mentor assistance a week or so ago.

I have been inundated with unbelievably helpful replies, and now have a toolkit to draw on to start turning around behaviours and mind-sets that have been detrimental in my life.

I just want to thank Horsesmouth and all the amazing people who reached out to me.  Each and every one of you has given me something to think about, and some have given me heaps of material with which to start working.  Now I need to do the work! Thank you so much!'
