Lah Mi Tanko, a social media strategist and handler, a content creator and ghostwriter speaks on the act of mentorship.
In her words, she said.
Don’t let anyone deceive you, mentors are good. It’s very profitable to have a GOOD mentor.
If some of us had/have mentors, we’d have been farther than this in life.
Mentors are like managers. They will guide, direct and shape you.
I will tell you the mistakes a lot of you make, you select mentors base on fickle things…
You see someone with bastard-tendencies, you select them because they wear good clothes and their carelessness humbles you.
You select someone with Oloriburuku-potentials because they speak and write well.
You don’t have a discerning spirit and that is why these mentors mess you up in the end.
What a lot of you call a mentor is just admiration.
It takes a lot to be a mentor.
Let the person be older and more experienced, let their drives and passion align with yours.
Don’t be a career-driven person and have a mentor who is a religious-driven person, who is only driving to Heaven. You will have issues.
