Who was an instrumental mentor to you in your first job?

I’m going to talk about my boss and mentor in my second professional (non-teaching) job. It was my first marketing position and I had moved into a role where I had a lot to learn. Plus, I worked for a medical manufacturing company which was totally new territory. When I asked questions, and I had a ton of them, my boss would hand me a sell sheet, or direct me to an industry publication. He encouraged me to talk to others in the company and ask them questions. It was never that he didn’t have the answers, but he wanted to teach me a greater lesson – how to find answers myself.
