Why You Need A Mentor in 2023

You will only learn 2 ways in life: through your mentors, or through your own mistakes. Let me tell you how you can find a mentor ⬇️.

Nearly everyday, someone asks me how to find a mentor. Mentors are able to give key advice from the perspective of someone who’s been in your shoes. I get questions like:

  • How important are they?
  • Do I really need one?
  • Where do I find one?
  • How do I get a good mentor?

Here's the thing, you could 100% gain success without a mentor, but it typically takes much longer and can be more expensive in the long run. 

The statistics show that businesses with a mentor survive 2x as long as startups with no mentors! That’s because one of the greatest benefits of a mentor is that you get to avoid costly mistakes they’ve already made.

So yes you DO need a mentor and the good news is that in 2023, finding and connecting with a mentor is easier than ever!

I like to give you the facts so if you’re still not convinced, let's look at the powerful benefits of mentorship:

  • 97% of individuals with a mentor say they find the experience to be a valuable one  (source)
  • Employees who are mentored are promoted five times more often than those who are not in any type of mentorship program
  • Mentors themselves are promoted six times more often and
  • According to the Small Business Administration, 70% of small business owners that receive mentoring survive for 5 years or more. This is double the rate of business owners who do not receive mentorship. 

Surrounding yourself with the right people and leveling up your current network can help you find the breakthrough your business needs. 

So then, why do only 37% of professionals have a mentor (source)?!

If you ask me, it’s because you’re overcomplicating what a mentor needs to be or you’re too afraid to ask. But just like sales, if you don’t ask the answer will always be no!

So let’s break down what a mentor really is…

Mentors don't need to be by your side 24/7 to be effective. They can come in many forms. They can come in books. They can be influencers on social media from afar. They can be teachers, your kids, your parents, a colleague or a successful business owner down the street. Heck, they can be a failing business owner. There’s so many lessons to learn everywhere you look.

So when it comes to finding a mentor, don’t overthink it. My first mentors were my mother, a great teacher who believed in me, and a man who ran a corner store in my neighborhood. 

If you're still looking for a mentor, look at the people in your community.
