Once upon a time industry recognised mentors only existed in formal institutions, such as universities. This meant that it was usually quite expensive to learn from a mentor and it also meant that mentors were scarce, and difficult to get access to.
Today, in 2020? Anyone can be a mentor.
Why? Because education and learning have been democratised.
What does this mean? It means that anyone can leverage their experiences and expertise to educate others.
Is this a good or a bad thing? Neither… it’s a GREAT thing!
We spend most of our lives working and delivering value and what happens is that as we invest more years into working, we experience complex-adaptive and dynamic forms of compound learning. If we focus our efforts well, we become really good at a lot of things and sometimes we become industry leading experts.
When we learn things, we add value to ourselves, as contributors to communities, groups, businesses and economies at large. One of the ongoing challenges for many professionals is discovering ways to earn money proportionate to their skills and knowledge, based on incidental and deliberate learning.
And this is why you should become a mentor - because you deserve to make money from what you know. In simple terms, you make money when you exchange value with some other person or entity. In exchange for providing value, you get paid (which is of value).
