Sometimes we all need a little help from our friends.
That’s the core message of Mentor Mondays, a smart new YouTube series launched today by the Virgin Group.
According to the accompanying page on Virgin.com, the films for entrepreneurs are meant to “give you the impetus to take a leap into the unknown, inspire you to keep a fledgling idea alive, or take the next step into turning your dream into a reality.”
Each week Virgin plans to release a short video showcasing a businessperson discussing how a mentor helped them succeed.
Why Mondays? Aside from the nice alliteration, it’s also when “we all that need bit of inspiration to kick start the working week.”
The first installment of the series features Virgin founder Richard Branson explaining how his mentor, Sir Freddie Laker, was integral to the company’s success in the airline business.
