Welcome to episode 60 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.

Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and much more.
In today’s episode, I offer listeners three benefits as to why you should seek out mentors and mentees because in reality success is a team sport and you need to find the right people to help you get there.
Mentorship is all about forming a great relationship centred around a mutual passion. You must achieve total honesty, perfect your communication and connect frequently. If you do it right, your career will soar to new heights for both of you.
If you have a mentorship, you will learn how to accept and give feedback. You can ask a mentor to give you feedback which will serve you not only in the context of that relationship but in every other situation where you must be open to feedback.
The second thing is that you will be pushed outside your comfort zone. Stepping outside your comfort zone will help you become a much stronger person and give you the confidence to reach higher levels in your professional and personal life.
The third benefit is that having a confidant helps reduce stress. Both the mentor and the mentee can benefit from the stress-reducing power of the relationship because you will become friends who trust each other’s good judgement.
