Camel had been working at dead end jobs for years now. His true passion was creating products instead of simply making them from some book. Suddenly one evening he realized that he needed to make a new start. One that didn’t involve him following by another set of rules someone else had laid out for him. He had the ideas, a plan he’d written for fun long ago but now he knew one more thing he needed before the business could be started – a mentor. Someone who knew the whole business realm and could prevent him from making a lot of mistakes he could avoid. Going online and to the local business center he met individuals which could act as mentors. Camel knew no business owner should be too proud to accept help from a mentor figure.
