In the coming weeks and months we will be featuring interviews of successful entrepreneurs who were once starting out and in your shoes.

We’d like you to meet Shelly Sun, the Founder and CEO of BrightStar Care. Check out this segment from her interview on mentorship.

Learn how Shelly found her first mentor. Starting out as a mother with a young family, Shelly knew traveling was an inconvenience for her. This led her to intentionally seek out a local mentor in the Chicagoland area. After discovering two women who had franchised their businesses in the local area, Shelly went onto LinkedIn and specifically tried to find connections to those people.

Shelly’s advice, when searching for a mentor, is to find somebody who fits you. More times than not there will be entrepreneurs who have already made their mark and had their successes, who want to help the younger generations of entrepreneurs.
