TRIP029 – 2017 Recap – Mentors
In this episode of TRIP we’re talking: Mentors. It’s a topic that’s come up a few times in previous episodes, especially the Behind The Scenes series.
DAVID KONSKY FROM 2DAY FM FIRST TALKED ABOUT THIS IN EPISODE 19
As part of his five tips he talked about these two things:
- Find a good mentor or coach you can ask people a load of questions of. No question is stupid!
- Share your work with people that you respect and admire.
Both of which are great points to remember. Having a coach can speed up your learning, as can sharing your work with others!
THIS WAS EXPANDED BY DENZIL LACEY AT FM104 FROM EPISODE 22
He talked about networking with your peers and how networking can build a group of mentors you can trade ideas with, share work and generally improve your work by doing this.
DAVE AND DENZIL ARE RIGHT
It’s really important to find yourself a mentor who can help you with your work. Just having someone to send work to from time to time to get an idea of how you could improve can be extremely beneficial. If you’re really committed try to have more than one mentor so you always get contrasting opinions on your work to make sure you’re picking up as much as you can from what you’re doing.
But you’ve got to be careful…
…AS DOM NERO FROM HOT 97 POINTED OUT IN EPISODE 25
“Don’t be an A-hole” which is just a great quote. But mostly, “Sit down, be humble.” It’s hard not to agree.
