Youa re absolutely correct. You don`t have to be an expert in a certain field to be a mentor. You need to be an inspiration, a motivator, a guiding "angel".
I`ll call him for coffee or a beer every now and then, when I want need some advice or feedback.
What usually happens is that he starts asking me questions and more importantly, challenges my answers. Sometimes, I feel like I go away with homework (more thinking or research) to do.
A true teacher makes you find the answer yourself.
If you Desire that, it will happen for you.
