Studies show that most people who succeed have a mentor.
1) Mentors are inspirational
When you feel like giving up a mentor can offer the words that will give you the strength to continue your journey.
2) Mentors know the path
A mentor in your field has been there and done that. They know the challenges you’re facing because they overcame those same hurdles before you.
3) Mentors will expand your network
Mentors have experience and know the people that you should meet or learn from. They may even introduce you.
How do you find one? If you don’t have anyone you know near you then use the beauty of technology. There are many mentors available online.
