I recently had a chance to sit down with a friend who has been doing incredible things with his career and business. He offered to sit me down, walk through my current operations and help me figure out a strategy to take things to the next level. We ended up talking for a little over an hour, and the chat ended with a concrete plan for the next twelve months to redefine my strategy and mindset. It’s hard to say the impact this conversation will have, but I’m optimistic—the last time I had a serious chat with this person, it led to creating Learning on Steroids, which ended up saving my business and allowing me to go full-time as a writer. This person is incredibly busy and charges a lot for his time. Most people I know would have killed to get this kind of personalized advice, yet they probably won’t get it. Mentors Matter Because Most Knowledge is Hard to Write Down I’ve been lucky. Mentorship is incredibly important and it can shave years off your learning curve. This isn’t fair.
