If you’re thinking of advancing your career or your people, you’ve probably heard the phrase, “You need a mentor to guide you; You need a mentor to help you achieve this and that...”. True enough, one needs a mentor to help them with decision making in their business and career endeavors and to foster their skills.

The demand for mentors is high, but the supply is low. In a survey conducted by our guest, Reshama Shaikh, she found out that 90% are looking to have a mentor for their business. But where can you find the right mentor to guide you or your people?
