Whether you realize it or not everyone has used a mentor at some point in their life. At school, your teachers mentored you to pass an exam. As a parent, you would have no doubt have asked your own parents for advice from time to time. And in the workplace, you would have been mentored to do the job you are doing right now.
But unless you have been fortunate enough to have been exposed to business entrepreneurs organically, you are most likely stuck in a rut of trading your time for money!
This is not your fault, because you are doing exactly what you have been trained to do by your past mentors. However, if you want to break free from working hard for very little reward, you need some new mentors.
5 Reasons Why You May Need A New Mentor.
- Mentors provide information and knowledge.
- Mentors find ways to stimulate our personal and professional growth.
- Mentors offer encouragement and help keep us going.
- Mentors have experiences you can learn from to prevent the same mistakes beginners make.
- Mentors are free, which make them priceless in more ways than one.
