A mentor hones your competitive edge with an outside perspective.
My memoir writing has emphasized how much I needed to be my superhero. Entire Productions has been one of the fastest-growing companies in America for three consecutive years, and I have been recognized twice by “Entrepreneur 360.” Consider recruiting mentors/advisors from outside your sector to provide a new viewpoint on your company.
A mentor with an outsider’s viewpoint can go beyond the tried-and-true formula and provide you with suggestions that result in an “unfair edge.” As a young musician in the Bay Area, I combed through publications such as Acoustic Guitar and JazzIz, seeking advice on becoming a successful musician. After twenty years, I now own and manage a multimillion-dollar events and entertainment production business. Try not to let unfavorable events in your life put you back, distract you, or diminish your spirit.
