In the past few weeks, we have received a number of testimonials from mentees who have worked with Cornerstone volunteer mentors to help their business move forward. It is a competitive market out there, and small businesses approach Cornerstone needing help in different parts of their business – marketing or finance for example. Mentors can help give focus, and today we are pleased to post a Cornerstone testimonial given by Holly from Holly Berkley Jewellery, who has used our support to bring the different aspects of her business – which she runs alone – together.
My name is Holly Berkley. I run a business called Holly Berkley Jewellery. I make wirework jewellery and woven flower wedding crowns as well as wirework tree sculptures.
I work alone running online as well as face to face sales. But find it difficult to pull all aspects of my business together.
Cornerstone put me in touch with a suitable business mentor, who could offer practical ideas and advice that worked for me. I found his advice very useful in keeping a focus on what I need to do in the right order to move forward in a meaningful way.
It is invaluable for me to be able to ask for advice when I need it from someone who is patient and encouraging. And it has put my career on a surer footing.
Thank you Cornerstone.
