Friend. Confidant. Teacher. Coach. Role model.

These are just a few of the words used to describe one's greatest asset in the business world - a mentor.

Mentors, wise and trusted advisors that they are, serve as the cornerstone to a successful young professional life. However, though business mentors are easily accessible, they are vastly underutilized. Whether it's the hectic nature of a college schedule or a lack of business contacts, the influence and importance of business mentors in one's personal and professional growth, especially young adults, should not be underestimated.

What does a mentor do?

Classes, work, extra-curricular activities, and going out with friends often keep students so busy that they have little time for anything else. However, many of the problems faced in these everyday tasks are exactly what a mentor can help one deal with. A mentor can give advice to help tackle these responsibilities and provide clarity to one's personal and professional goals.

Rich Langdale, CEO of NCT Ventures, an operating and investment company, is a mentor and trainee alike. Having had the opportunity to benefit from mentors himself, he attempts to give back to the community and other individuals looking for guidance.

Langdale believes that "business mentors are of great importance because no one has all the answers. It is very valuable to assess your limitations and then seek out mentors in the areas where you need the most improvement and knowledge."
