Share. Learn. Grow.
National Association of Senior Move Managers (NASMM) offers a specialized program specifically designed for experienced NASMM members to offer
paid, professional mentoring to less experienced NASMM members. It’s called
iMentor? New or growing small business owners
are in business by themselves, often acting as their own navigation system.
Without a large organization’s resources, they long for a sounding board for
their frustrations and fears or a discreet, impartial advisor with whom to discuss
the tactical and strategic challenges of running their Senior Move Management
frequently adjusting to changing circumstances, new business conditions, and
unforeseeable challenges. Consulting with a Senior Move Manager mentor - someone
who knows what they’re going through – can be invaluable. A mentor is someone
who’s “been there, done that.” Mentors can provide tailored guidance, general
best practices, and an example of a successful Senior Move Management business.
Sure, they can ask family, friends, or consult the Internet, but what they
really want is to connect with someone who has already experienced the same
issues. Only another Senior Move Manager will do.
iMentor. We’re making it easy for less experienced
members to find one-on-one support while also providing successful Senior Move
Managers with the opportunity to share their experience and expertise, all
while being paid to do so.
Senior Move Managers can tick off a list of predictable mistakes that new business
owners are likely to make. But if you are new to running a business, it's not
always easy to identify a successful business owner who is willing to mentor
you, let alone one with whom you have natural rapport. We want to give NASMM
members access to their most experienced colleagues, but in a different
geography — so competition does not impair the iMentor relationship.
