Every hero —including you — needs a mentor, a guide and a companion for the journey. The road you’re on can take you to uncharted territory where there’s no map, no road signs, and no way to know if you’re going the right direction. And that makes it easy to feel like you’re stuck on the island of misfit toys I believe you can benefit from the mistakes I made and the wisdom my mentors taught me. I have traveled the road you’re on and I hope you’ll think of me as your misfit mentor.

Fill in the blank: When I was thirteen I usually felt kind of (fill in the blank…) I have traveled around the U.S. and parts of Europe asking people that question in workshops and in private conversations.
