Dan Martell, an entrepreneur, investor, and speaker has started companies and failed. He started companies and succeeded. He has utilized mentors along the way to help him succeed.
He has released a video on what questions not to ask a mentor. Good points, as we can all learn on what NOT to do.
For instance, his first question that a person should not ask her/his mentor is “How did you get started?” Sure, you want to learn by doing what the mentor had done to be successful. But, circumstances have changed since the mentor started.
The question should really be “How would you do it today, if you were starting over?”
Take a look at the video and see if you can apply these points as you consider your discussions with your very own mentor.
Prepare and go for it!
