I just read a post by Katie Hammel in eBay for Business, “Why Every Entrepreneur needs a Mentor — and How to Find One”. It’s an excellent article. Chances are you’ve been a mentor in your own life, starting with your children or younger family members or friends.
I’ve learned a lot since I’ve been doing eBay Radio, both from Griff and from just about every eBay seller I’ve come to know. Successful people never stop learning, and even mentors have mentors.
I owe my success to many mentors in my career and in my life. I chose them for different goals I wanted to achieve. Some mentors follow special rules for mentoring; this can be a good way to go. I’ve also used the old-fashioned method: Keep your ears open and your brain engaged.
