I would add - don’t think you have to buy into a “mentorship” program or pay for mentoring time. You can also connect up with more than one mentor, because sometimes they will disagree and sometimes they will be wrong. I have several I talk over deals with that I have encountered while looking for properties. Each is more experienced in what I want to do than I by a lot. I should note that in soime cases we do business together. This is where I can size someone up. There are plenty to talk a good game, but would be poor choices for mentors.
One other criteria, a good mentor can walk you through deals they have done (one showed me his TIC contracts when I was exploring those).
