I think that what I would do more. I have I’ve read a lot of books so I guess I would call them my mentors. But I think I would really seek out more in person mentors and try to listen more on those things. So for me I’ve always and it’s work. So I mean it’s kind of almost going against the success I’ve had. But I think that I’ve always tried to find my own way. So it’s funny because I don’t know how many other people listening think like this but I hope a lot just because I don’t want to be alone on it. But you know even from I’ll just give you an example. I’ve been at companies that have pretty great training programs and a lot of times as I’m seeing things happen on that. I’m always trying to find my own way and sometimes I’ve done it for no other reason than just to say I found my own way. And I think I would really try to find some mentors that I really really respect and that could be a personal items whether it be investing or in other things but sales in general I would just find more in-person mentors and really try to engage with them. I haven’t done a good job of that. Mostly what I’ve done is find my own way and then execute. And I think I could have benefited and have started to search those out in the last few years to really find great mentors.
