There are different schools in mentorship and stuff.
And if you listen to well, everybody and, you know, including me, I told you that having a mentor can be pretty good. You know, it is really good to have a mentor. And there are people who have different views.
I had mentors in my life but it wasn't a job title. I didn't go to them and say, oh, be my mentor, I'll pay you something, and then you're my mentor, and then you're going to do this. You're going to do that.
It's just people who are in my life at the time who taught me stuff, values and how things work and everything. But their job wasn't to be my mentor.
It's not necessarily just in business. A mentor can be someone who taught you something in life. And there are different facets of life. And my mentor was one of my colleagues, actually. His quote unquote job was to mentor me when I got in the company, also during my training period. And I just needed someone who had been there and knew the ropes a little bit to point me in the right direction.
And the other person who was a huge mentor for me is still in the same company, a manager that I had. So I had been there for a year or maybe a year and a half, I don't know. And she taught me so much. So her job wasn't to be my mentor, OK? Her job was my manager. She was managing the team and stuff.
But still, you know, for me, she was my mentor. And I'm pretty sure she doesn't know she was my mentor. OK, so I just wanted to point that out because, you know, when I use the term mentor, you might think that it's something very formal. This is not what I mean.
A mentor can be anybody. It could be your basketball coach. Someone who's just influencing you in life and in the right way. OK, you don't want a mentor that's going to drag you into some shady businesses and, you know, get you to end up in jail.
OK, so anyway, I think that it's nice to have some of these figures in your life because you can see other perspectives and learn stuff from them.
The secret about finding a mentor (2020 style)
Just to basically reiterate my point about mentors, because I don't think I actually explained it well last time, what I meant by mentor, because, you know, people think that it is again, there is something like super formal and there is someone who is like, yeah, I'm Bob's a mentor or I'm Susan’s mentor.
No, you can have someone who's a mentor to you. They don't actually know it. It's not their job. They're just teaching life just like you're teaching anybody. Or just interacting with you. And they can still be your mentor and show you stuff.
OK, so, you know, it's you know, I think it's it really helps, but not just in business. Again, this is very important for me, not just in business.
I have mentors now and, you know, probably they don't know, but they're my mentors. I have my friends, Claire and Richard and their daughter Katie. They're my mentors in kindness and caring about people and being a better person.
There are mentors because of who they are and their kindness and everything, you know, so they don't have to have a specific job title.
You know, for example, their daughter, Katie, she's younger than me. She's far younger than me. She's from a different generation. But still, she's my mentor because, you know, even though she's younger than me she's done so much and devoted her life to help others. That's what I meant by mentors.
