In a whitepaper for MetLife, we highlighted five crucial advisors that entrepreneurs need on their teams in order to succeed: a finance whiz, a business mentor, a benefits expert, a legal eagle, and a tech advisor. Even business owners with a background in tech or finance can find value in having these experts on their team. Advisors prevent entrepreneurs from spreading themselves too thin and allow for a deep dive into each element of the business.
These advisors also belong in your circle of trust to provide a fresh perspective on the business. They see the company in a different way and can offer their advice for future paths forward. In this way, your advisors act like an additional set of eyes looking out for problems.
We created this whitepaper as a resource for entrepreneurs who have an amazing vision, but might not know exactly how to execute it. This content becomes a resource that readers can turn to while they’re building their own advisory boards.
