Mentoring ensures that experience, knowledge, and hard-won insights is transferred from one person to another through personal interaction over time. Birdm0n believes that while a person’s own ideas might prove to be essential in any endeavor, with an experienced mentor at their side, they are guaranteed oversight, guidance and renewed strength. Globally, we noticed that founders of businesses who have been mentored by top-performing entrepreneurs, are three times more likely to become top performers themselves. According to a study done by Jupiter Business Mentor, it was noted that 93% of young entrepreneurs feel the need to interact with mentors who have been there, done that and seen it all. Similarly, more than 80% of mentored businesses have witnessed long term growth, success, and business revenues; doubling their survival rates as compared to non-mentored businesses.
Is mentorship relevant amid the pressure that comes with globalization? Founder and CEO of Thugbirdz and Hatchlabz, Birdm0n, says yes, and insists that every young person who wants to venture into entrepreneurship should at least be in a community that inspires them to realize a better version of themselves. Birdm0n has been working hard to increase the value of both Thugbirdz and Hatchlabz and one of the strategies he is currently using to actualize this objective is by mentoring other young, novice and talented digital artists.
ThugDAO is a hub for artists and dedicated experts that operates within the Thugbirdz business ecosystem. It is a decentralized autonomous organization that not only mentors its members but also provides them with exclusive offers that will elevate their status as digital artists. ThugDAO also supports talented artists who need financial support to bring their craft to a larger audience. Birdm0n’s role within this establishment is largely centered on mentorship. He says that every budding digital artist needs to understand the right route to reach their destination once they embark on being part of their desired world. As a mentor, he acts a s navigator, always trying to expand the viewpoint and sharing multiple perspectives to individuals which can help them to solve problems.
As pointed out by Birdm0n, communities work best if their goals focus on a worthy cause instead of solely on increasing their digital profits and assets. It is a mantra that reminds members to be more engaged and inspired to support collections because they know they are working towards a bigger-than-life goal. This is an ideology that Birdm0n conveys to people he is mentoring- that it is important to celebrate each other’s milestones. Ideally, this mentality keeps the members engaged and enthusiastic. ThugDAO brings individuals who are in need of such wisdom closer to Birdm0n.
Birdm0n reiterates that individuals seeking a mentor-kind of relationship with him should strive to establish some chemistry. This will be the pillar of all conversations, and it is okay if he is not the right fit. It is about talking with a mentor who you can trust, who will remain candid with you yet supportive.
