The Cabinet Makers Association formed a mentor council to assist members on matters related to running a successful and profitable business.
The goal of the mentor council is to engage new and existing CMA members through one-on-one interaction with other members in the group, according to the professional organization for small-shop woodworkers.
The council will pair a member with a mentor that has an experience in a similar business situation.
"The mentor council is for anyone who has ever asked, 'How do other cabinet shops do this?' or thought, 'There must be a better way,'" CMA president and Northland Woodworks owner Matt Krig said in a statement. “There is no reason to try to figure it out on your own when there are people just like you who may already have the answer. All you need to do is ask."
"Having a group of people you know to rely on for advice and expertise can help you reach your goals of a more successful business and a better personal life,” CMA executive director Jim McDermott added.
