Mentor good or bad?

5 Replies

I have found a mentor were the deal was every deal I bring him I will get $2000 - $5000 off of the property and he will collect the rest, while he teaches me. The problem I have is I'm starting to feel he has different intentions he asked me to dinner and wine then said he fell in love with me the moment he saw me he is a nice guy I hate it's going in a different direction but we haven't even done a deal yet! I am kind of just wanting to jump in off of what I learn from here and different books any ideas?

He sounds like a creep... You two had a prearranged agreement that he would teach you and you both would work together. He's not being honest and you should find another mentor IMO.
