EP 83: How to Attract a Mentor You Want Without Killing Your Chances of Working with Them w/ Trevor Mauch
On this episode of the CarrotCast, I'm going to talk about attracting a mentor and how you can kill your chances of working with them in a matter of moments.
It doesn’t matter if you're a new entrepreneur. It doesn’t matter if you’re an experienced entrepreneur. You should always be mentoring someone as well as be a mentee.
That means you need the exchange of knowledge and the exchange of value and the exchange of real conversation on a consistent basis.
There is a right way and wrong way to go about getting a great mentor.
Your mindset from the start has to be on what you can do for them, not what they can do for you.
Ask more questions if you’re trying to find a mentor. What do they care about? What are their passions? Then, how can you provide value to what they care about?
Be curious about their story. Provide value and excitement to the person that you’re trying to gain knowledge from.
Please, please, please don’t waste time. Give value to them and show true interest in them. Stop selling you and your ideas.
