Do you have
a Business Mentor for Motivation?
A mentor is someone who serves
as an advisor, an example, a sounding board and ultimately a friend to
Having a mentor within your
industry that has already walked a mile in the career path that you have
just begun and has accomplished many of the same goals you have planned
for the future can be of great wealth to you both personally and professionally.
Is there a person that you
see referenced too quite frequently amongst your industry? Someone you
admire and find successful? You can start by contacting them and asking
them to meet with you for 30 minutes or by writing a letter and asking
if they have any tips or advice for someone that is just starting in the
same career path. More times than not they will be happy to speak with
you and offer you some advice.
Finding a mentor can be a long
process. You can't just go out and recruit someone to be your mentor;
you have to let such a relationship develop over time. Don't just target
the leading person within your industry because they are successful or
make a lot of money. Does this person share your same beliefs? Has he/she
achieved some of the same accomplishments you have planned?
A mentor can be a great source
of motivation for anyone in business. When you find a perfect mentor,
it can pay off in ways you cannot even imagine!
