While you may be a brilliant entrepreneur, everyone can benefit from having a mentor whose experience can unlock greater success. Today we speak with serial entrepreneurs Kevin Harrington and Mark Timm whose new book, Mentors to Millions, shows the power behind finding the right mentor. Reflecting this episode’s theme of impactful mentorship, Mark and Kevin chat about having both been mentored by legendary salesman Zig Ziglar. Despite having passed on, their connection caused Kevin and Mark to meet and form a strong partnership.

 

We then talk about how mentors have enriched their lives before diving into what you should look for in a mentor. As their shared mentor, Zig Ziglar once said, “No one drowns from falling into the water. They drown from staying in the water.”

 

Following this point, Kevin and Mark emphasize the value of being mentored by someone who has experienced failure and has learned from it. We touch on the ties between personal branding and mentorship and how mentors can help you stay on the cutting-edge. With the temptation to have your business creep into your personal life, Mike unpacks the myth of ‘work-life balance’ and shares how he now views his family as his most important business — with its own logo, mission statement, and shareholder meetings.

 

Near the end of the episode, they provide listeners with some final advice on collaboration and pushing your brand through content. Tune in to hear more about what a mentor can do for you.
