The 5-Minute Rule for Finding a Business Mentor

Natalie MacNeil shares her “5-minute rule” for finding informal mentors to help nurture you in your career, your business and your personal life in this “She Takes on the World” video.

Mentors have been a key part of building my brand and my business. I just wouldn’t be where I am without them. Before I dive into how to find a mentor, I want to clarify what mentorship means to me.

I think some people believe that a mentor is someone who meets with you regularly and advises you on all the major decisions you’re making. I have some of these formal mentors; however, I also have several people in my rolodex that I consider to be mentors even though our relationship is less formal. These may be people I check in with every few months just to ask a few questions. These are informal mentors, but just as important for long-term success.

I just wanted to clear that up, because I hear so many people say “I need a mentor” when they may already have a handful of people who do act as informal mentors. Not everyone has a mentor they meet with every Friday morning for breakfast, and that’s okay. Mentorship is so much more than that! The key thing is to have a few people you can turn to when you need a bit of help, or you’re making a decision that could use some expert advice.

In this episode, I share the technique I’ve used to find the mentors I currently work with. I call it my “5 minute rule,” and it has also helped me get the attention of celebrity entrepreneurs. Watch above (or click here).

After you watch the episode, I’d love to hear how you find mentors or get expert advice in a comment below!
