Find Your Digital Mentors

Last month I was on a panel discussing the importance of mentors and how they really helped me in my career. The panel moderator asked for recommendations on how to find mentors and I gave my favorite answer: start with digital mentors.

Digital mentors are people that you don’t know but they help you through their books, blogs, articles, videos, and podcasts. Digital mentors don’t have to be traditional writers, rather its people you respect and value their thoughts.

Have a favorite entrepreneur? Go on YouTube and find their talks or conference discussions, then skim the videos.

Have a favorite thought leader? Go on Stitcher and find podcasts they’ve been on in the past, then listen to the first few minutes of each.

Have a favorite author? Go on Amazon.com and find all the books they’ve written, then try the Kindle free sample.

Of course, Twitter, LinkedIn, WordPress, and others are great resources as well.

Entrepreneurs should find their digital mentors and make it a habit learning from them.
