Absolutely the Best Way to Find a Great Mentor

Finding a great mentor is one of the most important tasks of an entrepreneur. A mentor is a key member of your business team. Despite the importance of this task, many entrepreneurs do not know how to find a great mentor. They often approach this important task with the wrong mindset and wrong strategy. In this episode of My Biz Dream Team: Opportunity Wednesday Training Series we discuss absolutely the best way to find a great mentor.

As I write this blog post, Richard Bolles, the author of the classic “What Color is Your Parachute? A Practical Manual for Job Hunters and Career Changers” has just died. His handy guide has provided inspiration for millions of job hunters and career changers for almost 50 years.

I recall the first time I read the book when I was in college. The dream of becoming an attorney seemed so far away. However, I followed Bolles’ advice, an arranged an informational interview with an attorney in my hometown of Savannah, Georgia. I told him that I wanted to talk to him about law school and being a lawyer. He agreed to meet with me while I was home from college on winter break. That initial information interview reinforced my desire to become an attorney.

This attorney was the first in a long-line of mentors who have helped me guide my career.

In turn, I have mentored several people as throughout their careers. Sometimes the mentoring relationship lasts a few years or only a few months. It always depends on the fit between me and the person seeking mentoring.

In my experience, the mentoring relationships that work best, are those based on mutual respect and assistance. You first build a relationship, then you ask for help. Do not expect a stranger to be your mentor! Be sure that you can offer something of value in return.

Do not expect a stranger to be your mentor.

As an entrepreneur, you want to find a mentor who is already successful at what you want to do. You want to find someone who can teach you the ropes and help you avoid the traps for the unwary!


In this episode of My Biz Dream Team: Opportunity Training Series Dexter and I share with you absolutely the best way to find a great mentor. Find someone who understands your dream and is willingly to work with you to create a strategic action plan that you can implement.

    Thank you for this reminder. It is easy for us to believe that all we have to do is find that perfect person and ask them to mentor us. When the tables are turned, would we want people walking off the streets asking us to be a mentor? We would want to know that individual first. Thank you for the reminder that we should not expect a stranger to be our mentor.
