Closing thought –
***How to find a mentor
1) Core principle – have several mentors
2) Core principle – keep it low pressure! Each relationship will look different. Don’t put mentoring in a box. Don’t look for the perfect mentor.
3) Think about the area you need wisdom in. Search your contacts. If you don’t have any, consider your contacts contacts and ask for a warm introduction.
4) Ask that person if you can buy them coffee to pick their brain about a subject. Go from there…
