Who you regard as your biggest mentor?

I have always been searching for mentors in life, but I got one when I wasn't looking for. They say that a guru appears next door when the disciple is ready. I guess Steve Jobs also said this in his biography.


My mentor was a hard middle aged man in my neighbourhood, who taught me from reading psychology to actually closing the deals. I regarded him as a saviour and turned back to him whenever I needed some advice. He died recently and this loss is impossible to be filled.


Who you regard as your mentor and any qualities, tricks or lessons you learned that you can share, to help everyone of us with some more wisdom in our noble profession!

When I was young there was a guy a bit older than me. Him and me got real close. He taught me to be respectful. Stay quiet. Don't get too flashy. And in one case, no matter if she has a boyfriend, if thats the one, you go for it. Amd told me to use the line, 'you might think you love him but we know thats a lie so why not give prizrak a try'
He died after a few years knowing him.Β

I'm fortunate also to have a good father figure. Good dads are super underrated and under valued in today's culture.

My mother. Woman worked her ass off to put me through school and has been the most supportive person in my life. I love my Dad too, but if it weren’t for my mother I'd probably be dead in a ditch somewhere.

District Manager
My current mentor is the managing partner of a local investment banking firm. He has kids my age, and I impressed him when I pitched some partnership opportunities. I’ve gotten the feeling that his daughters disappointed him by just marrying well (and not working) so he’s taken me under his wing to make up for that, haha
