Motivational speaker Jim Rohn famously remarked that  “you’re the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” ( Or, alternatively, as James Michener wrote, “Bad companions bring bad luck”)  The question is: who should these five people be?  One answer, and maybe the best one,  is “mentors.”

Clearly, having a mentor is important,  but Anthony Tjan, CEO of Boston venture capital firm Cue Ball Group and author of “Good People” points out that “rarely can one person give you everything you need to grow.”   Tjan, thinks we need five types of mentors in our lives.

How many do you have?  (Shameless self-promotion:  With a Vistage Group, you’re likely to find several, all in one place).
