This post is a little selfish, so I apologize upfront. But I am in the process of finding a business mentor. My desire is to have this blog reach thousands of people that could use some encouragement in their day to day.
I have reached out to my old business professors. They referred me to SBA.com. I reached out to local colleges. Received nada.
My next step most likely will be to contact the mentors of the guys at theminimalists.com.
A mentor is important because they can assist you in reaching your goals in half the time. I do not want to spend 30 years figuring out how to expand my blog when I can get help and move forward in 10.
The key is to find someone that has specifically accomplished what you are trying to accomplish. You do not have to reinvent the wheel, just find the person with the blueprint.
