Hi Karen J. Great question! Throughout my career, I have had a few mentors who gave me great advice and guidance. Finding a mentor might be easier than you think! When you start a new job, try to find someone who you feel goes above and beyond in their role. You can then concentrate on building a relationship with them and simply ask them if they would be open for you to come to them for advice occasionally. Additionally, many firms offer a formal mentoring program for newer employees. As you progress in your career, these relationships will continue to grow and you can reach out to them when you need guidance. This is how I found my first mentor who I still keep in touch with to this day.
Having more than one mentor is a great idea. Everyone will have a different opinions, styles and approaches to each decision you are considering. By consulting with more than one mentor you can receive a range of advice and ideas.
There are a lot of complexities to finance. That is one of the most interesting parts of this field! You will be constantly learning and building your investment knowledge.
