How to Get a Great Mentor

Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want to Miss:
  • The right mentor can make all the difference. But the wrong mentor can destroy your confidence, impede your progress, and waste your time. Make sure that you choose the right person to be your mentor.
  • If you want a great mentor, you need to invest in the relationship. There is no use having a mentor and never following their advice.
  • There’s a huge difference between a mentor and a coach. A coach uses a specific methodology to help you reach a specific goal. A mentor creates a relationship with you and shares their expertise and experience to help you achieve the life and career you want. 
  • A mentorship is a relationship. A good mentor will be personally invested in your success. 

I’ve long touted the value of having a great mentor and I have personally benefited from several great mentors over the years.
