    I have noticed lately that there seems to be a lot of people that wouldn’t be where they are today with some form of a mentor.

    As I am just starting out my career in the bookkeeping field, working towards becoming an accountant I can see that while I have the book knowledge I still need the practical hands on experience that you can only get by working with someone.

    I would love to be able to help someone grown their business while getting valuable knowledge at the same time so my question is, how did you find your mentor?

    Regards,
    Liz

    [USER=5318]@JamesMillar[/USER] – sorry to dob you in on the thread :)

    Lizzy_Lou – I know James (partner at 360 Partners, accountancy & taxation firm in Melbourne) is great to work with and when opportunities are available is really supportive of others entering the field. I’m not dobbing James in to be a mentor – as I know he’s quite busy – but, may have some tips?

    Hi Lizzy_Lou,

    There are a few good articles on this site – simply search ‘mentor’ in the top right.

    This one is a useful overview: http://www.flyingsolo.com.au/working-smarter/professional-development/how-to-make-the-most-of-a-business-mentor and I liked this one too: http://www.flyingsolo.com.au/marketing/find-a-mentor?fref=gc&dti=1898187723783456

    Good luck on your search!

    Sam

    There was also a recent post about this in the Flying Solo Facebook group that you might want to check out. Alot of good conversations about how to get one.

    I agree, Byron, although it’s important to note the FS Facebook group is for paying members only ;)
