A business mentor is a professional who has their own unique business experience and can guide you through making difficult decisions, point out ways of improvement, ask you the tough questions and motivate you to want to achieve higher levels of performance, all within the bounds of a trusted relationship

First of all, Kenton is a stand-up guy.  He has a remarkable ability to help our business see things from an outside perspective and treats our company as if he was the majority owner. Our group has almost daily conversations with Kenton, and he is ready to assist us at anytime.   Kenton draws on his years of business consulting experience to help our company in each situation.  Our company is extremely fortunate to be able to lean on Kenton whenever needed and considers him not only a great mentor and consultant, but much more importantly an incredible friend.
