About Business Mentors. Inc

Business Mentors, Inc. is a career management organization that was founded in 1995 by Al Stewart, a former corporate executive with background in the transportation and communications industries with industry leaders such as Eastern Airlines, AT&T, GTE and Sprint and educational background in Adult Education. The initial focus of the business was to address the career transition needs of the employed who were struggling to find alternatives to their current situations or those who were seeking a totally new career direction. The support services took the form of strategies to conduct an effective, productive career search or executive coaching support to help individuals to consider and explore alternatives either within their current organizations or elsewhere.

From these initial focus points, Business Mentors, Inc. grew to include Entrepreneurial Support Services for those individuals who wanted to start their own businesses or consulting practices. In some cases, individuals were seeking assistance in exploring franchise opportunities or home-based business development opportunities.

The focus of this practice area was to assist unemployed executives during their transition process by providing emotional support during this trying time and helping them maximize their chances of re-employment with search methodologies as they explore new, challenging positions after their departure from their former employer.

While Business Mentors, Inc. is physically based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, we work with individuals across the country and overseas. Approximately 40% of Business Mentor's clients are based elsewhere in the United States or in Europe.  While nothing can replace the effectiveness of face-to-face contact, remote counseling is a very successful component of the coaching process using teleconferences, email and fax communications. Most individuals are more concerned about the quality of the product provided to them rather than the need to meet personally with the career coach.
