Author and speaker Jeff Goins and Entrepreneur Network partner Jeff Rose share some tips on how to get the attention of potential mentors. To start, make it clear that you are easily teachable. Bring along a pen and pad of paper and take notes on what these knowledgeable individuals are saying.

If you do find a mentor, keep in mind that they will want to see you take immediate action and then see your results.
