Be quick as there's not long left to apply for our Inspire & Mentor scheme!

Most of us have spent an evening over a glass of wine debating an amazing business idea or carving out our dream career.

But putting it into practice is another thing completely. However, Marie Claire is here to help!

We've signed up six amazing, inspirational women to take part in our 2013 Inspire & Mentor scheme. They will be providing business and career advice to six lucky readers over the course of this year.

Our mentors are: Donna Ida Thornton, founder of Donna Ida jeans; style blogger Poppy Dinsey, who founded fashion social network What I Wore Today; TV presenter and news reader Mishal Husain, who has covered the Iraq War and Olympics for BBC news; Rachel Khoo, chef, food consultant and presenter of BBC2's The Little Paris Kitchen; Playing Away author Adele Parks, who has sold over 2m copies of her novels, and Maleka Dattu, award-winning creator of skincare range Merumaya.

So stop dreaming and make those ideas happen by applying here!
