#4 Hire A Mentor
Listening to podcasts/audiobooks and reading will get you very far, BUT hiring a great mentor will get you even further and even quicker!
I’m all for tapping into free learning, but you need somebody that’s going to help you where you are right now, and that’s why it’s super important to hire an experienced mentor to guide you through the process and keep you accountable. A great coach is the best investment you can make!
