Having a positive influence from a mentor can go a long way in sharing in success learned from wisdom and life experience of another. I have been fortunate to be the youngest of 8 children and have been able to benefit from many mentors. The eldest of our family, my brother Mike, has had much success in his working career. Just a few years older than me (I jest), he has recently summarized his experience in buying and selling a few businesses over his career. Living as a happy retiree, his lessons are summarized in this team talk and suggests how he “won the race” of his life.
