The importance of mentors at every stage of your business

No entrepreneur can create a successful brand without some help. From registering your business with the FDA to seeking investors when you need to expand, someone has been in your shoes.

Your brand might be the most innovative, interesting product to ever hit the shelves of a grocery store. Nevertheless, you must complete all the steps required to start a natural products business. But there's no reason to go it alone. Koel Thomae, founder of Noosa Yoghurt, and Katlin Smith, who created Simple Mills, share how mentors have helped them navigate the complicated maze of entrepreneurship to become successful.
