If you want to become a better person, you should probably reach out to someone that will inspire you. Your proverbial “Celebrity Mentor.” I have read this cliche in a ton of different books. However I had no idea how to point myself in that direction. Personally, I have always found people like Bill Gates, and Steve Jobs very inspiring. Because time and time again they have always created something larger than themselves.
Steve Jobs is proof of this. He created Apple, got fired from Apple. Then in a crazy turn of events was put back in charge of Apple. At the time of writing this article it has been almost 5 years since Jobs’ death. Apple is still going strong. Of course there was a lot of thought put into his replacement Tim Cook.
Tim Cook is a huge “celebrity” inspiration in my life. He is also very down to earth. So my question was how could I ever be able to contact someone like a “Tim Cook” and ask for advice. Outside of running into him on the sideline of an Auburn game (WAR EAGLE!)
Find a Celebrity Mentor
When you think about asking someone for advice, you may get pigeonholed into thinking that there is only one person you should reach out to. However this is not the case. You should call on several different people, and you would eventually find someone that will be more than happy to respond to you.
Celebrity Mentor Contact Info
Obviously there is the “HOW.” This step stumps a lot of people. However I have found the service that will allow you to contact almost anyone that has reached “Celebrity” status.
Basically you sign up for their service, and next thing you know you have access to several peoples contacts and addresses.
Don’t gush or be all weird!
First when you contact someone please understand these are people that go potty just like you and me. There is no reason to be all weird about it. If you are emailing Britney Spears to ask her why she shaved her head at one point in her life… don’t attach a photo of you with your shaved head.
Another point is celebrities like a good compliment, as long as it is competent. Saying you are a huge fan and you are the greatest makes you seem like a teenage girl watch The Beetles on Ed Sullivan. If you say something like, “I liked your latest album XYZ, or I loved your interview in Time,” you will get a lot further.
