In my case, my Mentor was my teacher and uncle, my Marketing Guru, who inspires me and got my admiration, with a lot of business experience, older than me, that make me feel his respect and wisdom.
It was just something spontaneous, I never asked him for help, I just enjoyed his converstions and he also enjoyed that I was interested in what he was saying. I guess he was happy to have the opportunity to help more young people. He never knew he was my Mentor, and I never saw him as my Mentor, but that’s what he did for many years in my career.
I think that the best mentors could be retired people with a lot of experience to share, but doing it in a natural way, spontaneous, not as a volunteer job or as a task
What do you think about a it Rich, what characteristics are important to be a mentor? @rich-brooks
