Description

Modern mentorship is about opportunity, not advice. What you really want is someone to open a door for you, provide an introduction, or move your resume to the top of the pile. Eric Koester and Adam Saven give you a powerful new framework to make that a reality.

“Exhilarating and empowering… if you care about your success, you have to read Super Mentors.” – CEO Weekly

To get where you want to go in life — to be successful — you’ve undoubtedly been told to “find a mentor.” To search for a wise sage who will hold your hand throughout life, offering advice. The Yoda to your Luke, Dumbledore to your Harry, Glinda to your Dorothy.

Sorry to say…but most of us will never find that one special voice of advice. That, however, doesn’t mean you’re out of luck.

Truth is, there are powerful people out there — many in fact — extraordinary leaders in their fields who can move the needle for you. With Super Mentors, you'll be handed the Ordinary Person's Guide to Asking Extraordinary People for Help. In this book, you’ll learn:

  • How to Aim High, Ask Small, and Do It Again with strategy and intention
  • Why the Four Laws of Super Mentors regulate the world of modern mentorships
  • The surprising ways Jack Dorsey, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg and others leveraged Super Mentors to become who they are today

“An incredibly practical and useful guide. Eric Koester and Adam Saven distill the most fundamental information about mentorship, so you can build the relationships to help you achieve more success, happiness, and wealth.” - New York Weekly

This book outlines how anyone, even “ordinary” people, without powerful friends or well-connected circles, can build a team of extraordinary Super Mentors around them. It’s your guide to getting people in your every corner, helping you get exactly where you’ve always dreamed of going.
