Having mentors, investors and other people you can lean on is very helpful….. as long as you know how to get what you need from them. That is the hard part. That is where the Rubber Duck solution comes in. I highly suggest you read “To get the most out of your investors, turn them into rubber ducks”
When I wrote code for a living I had a mentor that just let me talk and then kept me talking. Pretty soon I figured out the solution for myself. It is an amazing process.
