So, I've realize recently that I need a mentor (if not more than one), to grow, get better, be focus, be challenged, etc. I feel stagnated in my craft and my goals and a little kick in the butt once a while from someone I respect won't hurt. I have a friend who was previously my boss as a creative director, and I really like his style, strategic thinking and creativity. But before asking him if he would be interested, I was wondering who has one here and what kind of thing do you do/talk about. Do you have some sort of match plan, short term objectives, etc ?
I also ask because I was approach by a junior designer where I work if I could be his mentor (isn't ironic...don't you think (ok, old reference)). I wanna help, but I'm not sure whats the best way to approach this.
