I cannot stress enough how thankful I am to have a mentor in the web design industry as talented and open as Jayme Cousins. Not only has he given me great insight as to what to expect in my first few months, but also offer support and an ear to vent some frustrations.  If you are starting your own business, don’t be afraid to reach out to your competition for mentoring.  The saying “you don’t know, what you don’t know” can truly make your first years in business a roller coaster.  Since your competitors have already been there and done that, they can save you not only time and money but also a few grey hairs too.
