Mentors Matter
Caroline Cummings, Oregon RAIN  

"I like to say, "Everyone should have a mentor and be mentored." It's because mentorship works. I've seen it help many people achieve success, personally and professionally.

I attribute much of my own success to having mentors. These are people I call on to help me think through challenging situations. And over the years, I've had many mentors with a variety of expertise, including finance, leadership, sales, marketing and investing. Between literature and film, business and politics, we are surrounded by great examples of mentor relationships. And yet, most people don't know how to find and get what they need from a mentor."
