You’re on the prowl for a powerful, charismatic and supportive mentor. And you’ve spotted someone who fills the bill.

But that person is hard to reach and doesn’t know you. Don’t let that stop you.

Take these steps:

Cultivate influence agents. Identify contacts who know the person. Tell them how much you like, admire and respect this person. If you express genuine admiration, the mentor may hear about it and call you.

Solicit advice. If your would-be mentor can’t spare the time, ask him to suggest someone else. That gives you an opening to stay in touch and follow up.
