Hi Searchfunders -

Just wanted to say hello as a new member. I’m currently doing a self-funded search and have found my local SBA community to be both resourceful and welcoming. While I’m grateful for a growing network, I wonder if you have tips for finding one key mentor. The formal mentor-pairing programs I have found are for operators, not searchers. I’m curious if successful self-funded searchers had one key mentor (outside of the deal) that guided them through search and if they formally sought out those relationships or let them unfold organically.
