The fallacy of the perfect mentor [podcast]

There’s nothing like great advice when you’re perplexed about what do next. Especially from someone who’s been through the exact thing you’re going through—or about to.

The problem is: no one is able to advise you perfectly. It took me a long time to figure that out and I spent many years in frustration looking for the perfect mentor.

The fallacy of the perfect mentor

In this week’s episode of the Reinventure Me podcast, my co-host Armin Assadi and I are trying something new. We invited one of our long-time listeners and a friend of ours, Dan Wobschall, to join us on the program to talk about the double transitions he is going through: in his vocation and in his location. In this episode, The fallacy of the perfect mentor, we talk about mentors as well as the incredibly high bar we often set for ourselves in the midst of transitions.

If you’re in the midst of a transition, or contemplating one, you may find some encouragement from listening in on Dan’s transition story. Find our latest show on the web or on iTunes and Stitcher Radio.

Please give us feedback on this alternate clinic format. We plan to produce Reinventure Me Clinic episodes like this from time-to-time. If you would like to be on the program, please contact me.
