Steps to find a mentor

Consider these 5 steps to get started. Each step builds on the previous...so don't skip any.
1. What do you want to accomplish?
2. (Based on 1) What do you want from a mentor?
3. (Based on 2) What kind of person could be an ideal mentor?
4. (Based on 3) Who could be a good mentor?
5. Ask the mentor (don't scare him/her, take it easy and be nice)

Choice

Perhaps a mentor will find you! Suitability is a matter of choice based on personal preference and research. It is your decision!

A True Mentor is Wise

The best mentors are not identified and pursued but rather realized from a long-term relationship of conversation and wisdom. A mentor can be anyone who allows you the time and thoughtfulness to reflect on your situation. And that can be in any arena of your life - business or personal.
