Mentorship is so important when it comes to starting in an industry you are not entirely familiar with. Meeting and working with the best mentors will not only open up platforms for you to learn the ins and outs of the industry, but it can also open up bigger opportunities for you to grow.

Mentors, with their knowledge and experience in the field, have built critical connections and relationships with the most important people in the industry that you are in. And more often than not, in an industry who you know is more important and useful than what you know. And your mentor can exponentially expand your web of contacts in the industry. Mentors can connect you with their colleagues, partners and even their seniors – and these are the kinds of individuals that can help you in your strategy in your career and business. Mentors can greatly guide you in making your next big step in your career.

Most importantly, you can learn from your mentors mistakes. If there are greater teachers than your mentor, it is their setbacks, mistakes and failures. If your mentor shares them with you, be very grateful because now you can avoid these mistakes and make better decisions in your career, but then again these are all under your discretion.
