Thoughts on Finding a Mentor


To get a mentor, and to even make use of them well, you need to be able to ask the right questions. You need to mature first on your perspective as an entrepreneur (and fundamentally a human being) in order to be able to do that.

No mentor, or respectable one, enjoys spending time with a child. The one thing every mentor revels in, is in seeing a perspective that is deeper than his, but lacks experience. That’s where mentorship becomes a mutually beneficial relationship; One built on respect, rather than old school rules of unconditional devotion.

“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me.” 1 Corinthians 13:11

“The student is not above the teacher, but everyone who is fully trained will be like their teacher.” Luke 6:40
