Getting Jobs in Entertainment Question 925: What other ways can I build relationships if I don't want to get mentors?
That's it. I'm putting my foot down. I refuse to answer this question (although you can look through older blogs and find answers) because anyone who does not want to get mentors, is not willing to do what it takes to make it in this industry. I've been coaching far too long and seen far too many people resist this simple task for months even years, only to discover when they finally reached out it was the GREATEST thing they'd ever done for their career.
Now, I don't know if it's fear stopping you, pride, or one of the many other excuses I've heard, but as far as I'm concerned, if you're not willing to go the extra mile and learn from the amazing people in our industry who have already done what you want to do, than I'd rather spend my valuable time working with the people who want to make it and will do what ever they have to do, for their business to succeed.
