It used to be that if we wanted to be mentored by someone we had to know them personally, and well enough to ask this relatively personal favor.
That, or hope they were a published author.
Now, anyone who would like to share their wisdom and insight can start a blog or join Twitter, and anyone else can effectively mentored by them without having any personal connection at all.
Is it the same? Not exactly, but I do think there’s something quite magical about the time we live in.
Take advantage of it.
P.S. Bonus question: Who’s your favorite Invisible Mentor (someone you follow religiously that you don’t actually know)…? Mine is Seth Godin.
