I think that aside from the advice that Kevin Harrington, one of the original sharks on Shark Tank, gives about how to find a mentor, working with a mentor, and why having mentors is so great, the best part of this interview was listening to Kevin tell the stories of his own experiences with his mentors. He has so many examples of how he met someone who knew someone else, who then got him money, or an introduction, or a job—whatever he needed at the time. The key is to talk to people and to not be afraid to ask.
Get a mentor and be the best student that mentor has.
