In this episode, Jason sheds light on a TED Talk he listened to which talked about not only limiting yourself to one mentor. By restricting yourself, you could have tunnel vision, thriving in one area of your life while falling short in other ways. Having a range of mentors is a holistic approach to help you succeed in all facets of life. Jason shares how this concept works in his life and more generally the positive impacts that having mentors has had for him. We learn more about how to find mentors, why it’s okay to ask for guidance, and the importance of being around people who add value to your life.
