If you are interested in being individually matched with a mentor or meeting with a mentor in your area
STRIVE Mentor Q&As
- how they chose their career
- what their day-to-day work is like
- what skills, qualifications and mindset is helpful in their field
- what value they are creating and trading
- lessons they’ve learned along the way
- and anything else you might like to know
We encourage you to participate in all sessions, since the conversation extends beyond field-specific questions into broader questions touching on all aspects of value creation and work-life balance. Also, it gives you a chance to learn about career paths you may not have considered. Want to see a particular professional featured, who is sympathetic to free-market principles? Let us know and we will try to schedule him or her. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Fantastic session, Don Watkins! Lots and lots of useful, actionable wisdom. Specifically, my favorite part was your advice on how to be a good mentee and how mentoring relationships DO provide value to the mentors, not just the mentee. Thanks for this session!
