Who’s your Yoda? err.. mentor?

Hey there!

So one of the most important things you can do as a budding entrepreneur is get a mentor. In fact, you need one. Just like Luke Skywalker needed Yoda to develop his powers, you need a mentor to develop yours. That’s because starting a successful business without mentorship is about as hard as lifting your X-wing out of a bog when you just found out about the force. Long and the short, it’s hard. And that’s even for Luke Skywalker who is supposedly the most kick ass Jedi in the Galaxy.

What to look for in a mentor?

  • A mentor should be someone you trust
  • A mentor should be someone who can provide you with constructive feedback
  • A mentor needs to know your industry well
  • A mentor needs to be able to maintain proper confidentiality
