I’ve been very fortunate in that I have consistently had wonderful mentors in my life. I stumbled on this concept early, in Cubs and with Youth Club leaders.
At the beginning of my business career, I met with a retired famous athlete for several years. I am also lucky enough to have four mentors who I meet with on a continuous basis. I have mentors for different areas of my life: leadership, business, personal, and for my soul.
How do you get a mentor?
Very simply – ask people that you admire. You would be amazed how many will say yes.
You will also be inspired, challenged, and encouraged to grow as a human being – and so will they.
