RE: I believe selecting the correct mentor is critical.
This is some great guidance for choosing a mentor, Andrew. I have found some really great mentorship in the CTP community. For a very long time I thought I could get by just trying to figure things out on my own because I didn't think that mentorship was important enough to invest in. I have changed my thinking on that. Even though I am not paying alot at all moneywise I am getting great value and I know that I still have to follow through on the advice that I am getting. Which I am doing. Mentors are there to teach and guide you not to tell you that everything you're doing is awesome when it's clearly not.
