Joey Agree: The most important advice I give to young people is to find a mentor. When you are considering a prospective job, think about who you will be reporting to. You want to attach yourself to somebody who wants to be a mentor. I had fantastic mentors: in high school sweeping work sites; in architecture print rooms; and in real estate companies. My father was my most important mentor. Also had John Rakolta Jr. as a mentor. Attach yourself to people are smarter than you; who have different experiences and perspectives; and who are willing to take you on. I was the kid they had to throw out of their office. I learned from others’ ideas and deployed them. As a mentee I would build trust by out working everyone. Some mentors, very few, do it out of the goodness of their heart. Most mentor relationships are bilateral -- both mentor and mentee benefit. Sweeping out a job site, arriving first at work, or asking people to teach me something, or taking them to breakfast -- I was always there to absorb as much as I could as quickly as I could. People are more willing to take you on when you approach things in that manner. It takes courage; you have to be vulnerable; you have to be willing. When I was sweeping out houses, the owner needed help cutting the checks, so when I was done sweeping I helped out, and freed up the superintendent and the owner. They saw the value, so they trusted me and were willing to teach me more. A lot of Millennials are looking to change jobs every year. We try to avoid that. (Active in the community.)
