When I first started my business in 2018, the first thing I wanted to do was to find a mentor. A mentor is something who guides you and points you in the right direction so you can achieve your goals.
I went to Grant Cardone’s 10x Conference in Miami in 2019 looking for a mentor and to meet some people in the real estate space to connect with.
I traveled by Brightline train the entire weekend, but I did not find my mentor. I did find a good tax person who today I’m so grateful for because she educates me on many things.
I left the conference still on the search for a mentor to help me get started. Meanwhile, I was still learning and people were saying real estate mentors are not needed and to get started, you just need to take action.
Still not knowing what that meant, I started talking to a friend/coworker and she would tell me about her past experiences with real estate and establishing businesses. As time went on, I started talking to my friend more and more about all things business and passive income related.
Today, I realized that she’s my mentor. She’s the person I go to when I’m stuck. She’s the one I call when I have a new idea. She is my mentor.
I wrote this blog post because I realized that mentors don’t always have to be in the same space as you. If you can find that one person that constantly gives you good feedback on how to improve or give you some direction, you have found your mentor.
I’m so grateful for mine. I call her very often and we talk for hours most days. As I was talking to her today, I told her I’m glad she doesn’t charge for her services. 🤣🤣 That would be one crazy bill. I also learned that she has helped others just like she helps me.
If you found a mentor, I’d love to hear about your experience. How did you found that person and how have helped you? Leave a comment or send me an email.
