You Don't Have To Go It Alone: How to Find a Mentor as a Freelancer
Keep in touch with former colleagues and associates.<\/b><\/h2>

Just because you&rsquo;ve decided to strike out on your own doesn&rsquo;t mean you can&rsquo;t still rely on former coworkers, bosses&nbsp;or other working relationships that you developed before becoming a freelancer. Those you&rsquo;ve worked with in the past are already familiar with your working style and approach to business, which is helpful context for any mentor\/mentee relationship.<\/p>

Make sure to keep in regular contact with former colleagues, especially those you admired when you worked together, so that you can use each other as a resource for professional questions or opportunities. Haven&rsquo;t been in touch for a while? Reaching out can be as simple as sending your congratulations about a new job or reminiscing about an old work memory, but it can go a long way toward helping secure a valuable mentor.&nbsp;<\/p>
