Brian Vent, New Jersey

Has helped: more than 20 entrepreneurs in the last year by sharing his learning of decades of experience in the retail and restaurant business.

Mentoring style: My approach with people I coach, typically centers around helping them get clear about three things:

  • The future they envision for their work and themselves
  • The goals that would indicate they’re on their way to realizing that future
  • The operational plan to realizing that future

Why do I mentor: I mentor entrepreneurs as an act of service (though I find that I often get as much as I give working with such talented and committed men and women). I work primarily with nonprofit and social enterprise leaders helping them increase the impact they and their organizations have in the communities they serve. I’ve had the opportunity to learn so much in my career, from mentors and experience, and feel fortunate to be able to be a resource for entrepreneurs doing good work around the world.

Why do I mentor? I enjoy assisting others to accomplish their personal and business goals through mentoring, coaching, entrepreneurship and lifelong learning.
