The most effective mentoring I have seen is where you have a successful person in your local area guide you thru everything personally. A good arrangement is to give him half the profits from your first deal for teaching you.
You will find the mass seminar teachers give you a generic course, then are available by phone with platitudes and standard school solutions. Way overpriced for what you get. You can probably get as good or better advice here on this board for free.
