Many people that say they need a mentor have needs that could be met by:

1. An accountability partner
2. A PAID business coach
3. A mastermind group
4. Books & online courses

Mentorship relationship have to be win-win to be sustainable. Its often a lot of work to maintain.
An accountability partner is a person who coaches another person in terms of helping the other person keep a commitment
It can be a friend, spouse, colleagues at work, brother from church or mosque. Some one that you share your goals with on a periodic basis. I recommend weekly.
Meetings should be at least semi-formal. Maybe watch an educational youtube video together or listen to a chapter from an audio book to set the tone.
The forms like this should be used to conduct updates. There are many others downloadable from the internet as well as other excercises you can do during the meetings eg personality tests
This article advises : Forget Mentors, Find an Accountability Partner.

Business coaching is a process used to take a business from where it is now to where the business owner wants it to be.
A business coach will assist and guide the business owner in growing their business by helping them clarify the vision of their business and how it fits in with their personal goals.

A mastermind group is a peer-to-peer mentoringconcept used to help members solve their problems with input and advice from the other group members.
Research suggests that optimal groups limit their size to 8 to 10 participants that meet regularly with rotating leadership
There are 8 people from different sectors in my current mastermind group.
Best practices include:

1. Only invite people with the same
level of career drive & focus
2. Have a semi formal structure
3. Collect dues
4. Consider asking people that fail to
attend continually to exit group
5.Have quarterly or bi annual retreats. Doesn't have to be anything fancy just a half day/overnight place where you can be alone & focus on your goals
If you live on the mainland. Try to have fellow masterminders on the mainland too. I always have to drive to Ikoyi which is LONG.

Try to keep it local. But quality of people is what really counts. 😁😀
