How To Find A Mentor

How does one find, or how did you find, a mentor/mentee?

Before finding a mentor, a person should ask “what do I want to be the best at?” and then find the person whom they feel is currently the best at whatever they want to me the best at. Once you identify this person, you become a scholar at their life’s work and then you make every effort possible to make contact with this person. I think one of the best ways of doing this is to offer your potential mentor/mentee a number of ways on how you can help them out. Maybe there are some skills you have that can benefit your mentor’s career. You can offer to do administrative work for them. You need to make a personal connection with your potential mentor – make them see a piece of themselves in your eyes.
