Want to Find a Good Mentor? Be a Good Mentee!
3) Be Willing To Barter: The mentor-mentee dynamic needn’t be one sided; you may have skills and connections that can not only entice a potential mentor, but add a richness and value to your relationship. Offer to help a sister lacking tech savvy with your company’s new online ordering systems. Hit the older writer you wish to shadow up and volunteer to create a Facebook fan page and teach him how to use Twitter. By offering an obvious, tangible benefit to your desired mentor, you can significantly increase your chances of a ‘yes’.
