EP 185: MINISODE How to Find a Mentor That Sticks

business Jul 27, 2021

One of the questions that gets asked most frequently in the real estate community is, “How do I find a mentor?” However, this might not be the right question to ask.

On today’s minisode, co-host Andresa Guidelli will pose a different question to listeners: Are you ready for a mentor? By asking yourself this question instead, you will ensure that you are clear on what kind of mentor you are looking for, what goals you need help attaining, and what you can bring to the table in the mentor-mentee relationship.

Tune into this week’s minisode to learn more about preparing yourself for a mentoring relationship and finding the right mentor for you and your goals.



 “The question that I want you to answer is, ‘Am I ready for a mentor?’...because the mentor will show up when you are ready.” (1:46-2:00)

• “If you’re not ready to get out of your comfort zone, if you want a mentor that keeps you comfortable, you might as well not have a mentor because you’re going to waste people’s time.” (5:50-6:04)

• “Listen to what the mentor needs, not just what your needs are. It’s like a puzzle: if it’s not a match, it’s not a match. You can say, ‘I can do X, Y and Z.’ Is that what the other person needs?” (7:12-7:27)

• “You can get the support you need without a mentor….Sometimes one-on-one is the only thing you’re seeing, but you also are able to have mentors in group settings….Even if you are not in the hot seat, you learn so much by watching other people like you going through the process of explaining their challenges and getting them resolved.”  (7:57-8:42)
