How to pick "the right" mentor?

Intrepid Niddering Intrepid Niddering
I want to have a mentor, but everything I've seen on the mentor program has people saying that one should make sure to pick "the right" mentor. I've gone through the mentor list, trying to read up on everyone, but I'm constantly left overwhelmed and confused.

How am I supposed to pick "the right" mentor? How do I know the mentor I pick will be the right one for me? Or am I supposed to just pick someone and hope it works out?

I really don't know what I'm supposed to do.

Look at the reviews of some of the mentors and see if you like them. Does their style appeal to you? Is there something in their writing you think you could learn about?

You could also shoot a potential mentor a message before sending an official request and see if your messaging communication is good.

Also, it depends on what reviews you want to write. There might be two excellent reviewers, but one may excel at glass toys while one is super awesome with lingerie reviews.

And you can check out how they communicate on the forum to get a sense of personality!

Hope that helps! Good luck!

Go through the list and pick a few. Message them and find out how their schedule works out. See if it lines up with yours. Chat for a little bit to see if you get along.

If you review certain products and want a mentor that is going to be similar look for similar tastes in items they review.

The great thing about the mentor program, is that if for some reason you feel you didn't pick the 'right' mentor, once you graduate you can select another mentor and work with them. It's not a one time deal; you can have as many or as few mentors as you'd like (once each one graduates you).

Look for someone with similar interests or someone that has a writing style that appeals to you. Reading what a mentor specializes in is usually helpful as well. If you only want to vibrators and the mentor says that they specialize in male masturbators, it might not be the best fit for you.

I think that there are many mentors that would be the 'right' fit. You just have to find someone that's style and interests appeal to you!

I agree with the above advice. Look through a few of the person's reviews and see if you like their style or not. If you do, shoot them a message. Say you'd be interested in being their student, what you hope to learn, and what types of products you'd be interested in reviewing. Never hurts to say what you like about their reviews either! I'd also ask what's expected in that person's class. Different mentors expect different things from their students.

I'd say don't just request a bunch and hope a good one accepts the fastest. Really look into who would be a good mentor. You could even go a step further and look on the mentor's profile and see who their students are and check out their reviews. Is the mentor helping to produce quality work or no?

Hope this helps! Good luck finding a great mentor!
