Have you considered engaging an Advisory Board member or a Corporate Mentor?
Advisory Board Members or Corporate Mentors are increasingly used in startups and/or growth companies to help grow and develop a business by taking advantage of the experience, skills and important contacts provided.Yet many companies appear reluctant to take this step, often waiting until they are out of their depth or in trouble by which stage it may be too late to help.

I think it is a good idea. I think every business can benefit from an "Advisory Board". Probably the bigger question is who to have on your board. A mentor is an excellent starting point, and you need an "outsider" who can look at the business dispassionately.
