Episode 127: The POWER Of Mentors

Sharon-Lechter

On Today’s Show

Sharon Lechter talks about the power and impact of getting a good mentor. There’s a big difference between advice and counsel. Advice is getting opinions from people – and are those people really qualified to give you advice? Then there’s counsel, where you go out and find people who have been where you want to go, who have the experience and knowledge to help you avoid the obstacles and get to the right open doors that will allow you to create success in your future. Mentors are worth their weight in gold because they are invested in your success, and they have that experience and the desire to see you succeed, because that means they succeed as a mentor.

1 Simple Thing Action:

Ask someone who is successful in what you want to do to mentor you. If you have someone already in mind you think would be a great mentor for you, put that into plan, and ask yourself, “How can I get in front of that person in a non-threatening way?” Are they involved in something that I can join? Make a commitment to take the next step to get involved with them. Consider 2 or 3 people you should think about that could be mentors for you, and put that plan into action. Understand what it is you want to do and how you think that person can help you. Put your plan in action but have the plan defined first. And don’t forget the importance of reciprocity.
