Here’s a great piece of lifetime advice (among many) by Pentagram partner, Michael Beirut:
“People always want to look for mentors – then they say “Will you be my mentor?” Do NOT do that. You don’t need their permission you don’t need to tell them they’re your mentor.”
“Anyone you know could be your mentor – you just need to start listening, be curious and paying attention. You don’t even need to meet the person – a TED talks person could be your mentor – you can have as many as you want – I’ve had hundreds of mentors – it’s free for the taking – just don’t tell them, that’s all!
[…] If you’d like to find out more of what helped Michael Beirut reach his full potential – how he got many mentors and how you can too – then don’t miss his advice, noted in an earlier post. […]
