Welcome to episode 22 of Ask Mark, where I answer your questions about personal development to help you become the best version of yourself.
From interviewing people from all walks of life on the What I Know Now podcast, I want to share with you what I have learned from my guests by answering any questions you have about personal development, networking and building meaningful relationships. The aim of Ask Mark is to help you achieve your goals sooner and help you stand on the shoulders of giants.
I love hearing from my listeners. If you would like to get involved and have your question featured on the show, please leave your question in the comments box or drop me a message on social media in the links below.
Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and so much more.
In this episode, I answer a listener’s question with advice on why you need to develop a meaningful relationship with a mentor and earn the right for them to help you.
Sometimes people think that mentors are just there to offer advice and guide them, but that is not the case. When you have a mentor, you must lead with generosity and earn the right for them to spend time with you.
If you have a mentor, take on their advice and feedback but you need to add value to them as well. They might not always look for it, but consistently offer your services and see how you can help them.
I would also offer you advice to surround yourself with a variety of different mentors. It will give you different perspectives and you need to keep reaching out for that feedback to help you develop.
