|Finding Great Mentors
Like most, I was lost and confused my freshman year of college. I had moved across the country to a city I had never spent more than a handful of days in, surrounded by thousands of strangers who seemed so much smarter and more experienced. And, I was set to embark on a four-year adventure with many potential outcomes. One thing I knew, was that I was interested in entrepreneurship, though I had no idea where to start.
Then I met Neil and Arthur.
Neil Shah and Arthur Woods were seniors at the time, and both were entrepreneurs as well—a couple of years prior, Neil started a fair trade tea company, and Arthur launched a farmers market delivery service. Those are notable achievements, but what made Neil and Arthur stand out from the typical college students with senioritis, was their penchant for mentorship.
