“There is no lack of knowledge out there…Just a shortage of asking for help” – Mark J. Carter

On the call with me today, I interview Mark J. Carter, a Chicago-based inspiration of mine whose work brings storytelling back to the business world. We start the conversation off starting with storytelling, then shift to something I hold dear to my heart: the value of mentorship.

Mark actually helped me realize that podcasting can actually be a valuable mentorship tool. It allows me to connect with some truly amazing people who, learn from them, all while getting to share their message with you. Also, I love how podcasting as grown my ability to be a mentor by connecting people who can greatly benefit each other’s work.

Have you ever met someone and then said, “Geez, he really needs to meet (fill in the blank).” It happens to me all the time and I love it. If this happens to you, go ahead and make these connections. We are, after all, living in the connection economy. If you remember what Joshua Klein said, he argued that your network is the most valuable asset you have today.

On the call Mark shares:

  • 3 Tips for Social Entrepreneurs to Tell a Captivating Story
  • How to Reach Out to Mentors
  • The Value of Connecting
