Seek Counsel Not Sympathy

Entrepreneurs need to surround themselves with key neutral advisers who are open to providing honest and realistic feedback to them. Entrepreneurs can use the concept of a Mastermind Group as a worthy resource as they grow their businesses.

Once the Entrepreneur seeks good advisers and forms an advisory board, the important task then is to seek advice and bounce off ideas and issues with these advisers. The Entrepreneur should be prepared to receive honest feedback including any constructive criticism.

The key element of this relationship must be for the Entrepreneur to seek counsel, advice, and constructive feedback from the advisers. In no event should the Entrepreneur use the advisory board to constantly complain about problems and seek their sympathy. This is not the primary role of any adviser.

Maintain a healthy relationship with your advisers by seeking their counsel and not their sympathy!
