Tropical MBAFind somebody you want to be like and go add value to them.
It is a very complex relationship.
Mentor is a word that is so used that it is meaningless.
Finding a mentor is an organic process. It is isn’t a handshake deal.
You have to be ready for opportunities as they present themselves.
Don’t maximize for income. Maximize for experience.
Don’t partner up with rich assholes. Just because they have something you want doesn’t mean they are living the way you want.
Mentors can be just as powerful in the middle of your career as they can be at the beginning.
Part of success is taking on responsibility.
Don’t assume that mentors are good at being mentors.
