TL;DR:

"While I'm not big on the term "mentor," I do think entrepreneurs need people to reach out to. In my mind, every entrepreneur should have a personal board of advisers--a diverse group of people they can rely on and seek advice from in different situations.

But dispensing advice shouldn't be the only purpose of your personal board. Your board should be built around a mutual give-and-take, and consist of people you enjoy spending time with."
