“Who does not have a mentor, even knowing the way will not know if he’ll get there.”
I identify myself with that person and want to go where she already was. She knows the way because she have already traveled it and knows all the treacherous corners and hidden holes.
Choose your mentor well.
You’ll want one that will guide and reassure you, so do not choose a shoemaker to guide you in business, nor a successful entrepreneur to teach you how to make shoes, no matter how much of a friend he is.
