I'm a huge fan of developing relationships and finding mentors for all areas of my life from business, fashion, philanthropy, blogging, medicine, and fitness. Mentors are awesome because they have more experience than you and enjoy teaching you the wisdom that they have acquired over the years!
Do you have a strong vision of where you want to be? Part of getting there is to surround yourself with like-minded people. How cool is it to hang out with amazing people and develop wonderful relationships with individuals who have changed the world?!
Mentors are true leaders that aren't afraid of rocking the boat or standing alone for a cause they believe in. They think outside of the box and truly want to change the world for the better.
Finding a mentor is much easier than you think... all you have to do is ASK! It's seriously that simple. Most people don't take the first step and seek out a mentor but the majority of people are flattered and would love to share their wisdom.
It has been shown that the people we surround ourselves with influence us in subtle yet profound ways. If you associate with people who are successful you will “absorb” their way of thinking and decision making.
