I am struggling with this one really hard: How often should you keep your Clarity mentors updated? By updated: I mean, just letting them know what's going on (as a courtesy): not getting on the call.
I sometimes think mentors are busy and its better not to disturb them. Please correct me if I am wrong.
I don't know your mentor but I'm sure he/she wants to see you succeed. Put yourself in your mentor's shoes. If he/she truly wants to help you, then they would love to hear from you and it wouldn't matter to them if they are busy or not.
My mentor is busy creating a billion dollar company, yet he cares more about helping and teaching that he takes the time to keep up to date with mentees.
There is nothing wrong with keeping up to date with your mentor as often as you like, whether you find success through his/her teachings or not.
As a mentee, you should be utilizing your mentor as much as possible but at the same time, be resourceful. Chances are most of the problems and questions that you have for your mentor is something that can easily be solved on your own through what you already have access to.
This question makes me believe that you are not connected with your mentor as much as a mentee should be. Is that so? Be honest with yourself.
Merriam-Webster defines a mentor as "someone who teaches or gives help and advice to a less experienced and often younger person." The key verb is gives. The experts on this platform advise. We perform a fee-based service. A mentor relationship is what you find between older and younger professional colleagues. If your advisor agreed to a specific number of updates then provide updates.
I'm new to this platform, but my understanding of this platform is it's kind of a pay per minute or pay per a set amount of time structure. If people can also connect and agree to a more long term partnership for hopefully a discounted price then it could be something moreso where they are on call to field your questions within reason.
I think it's fine to touch base and keep yourself accountalbe through the week but keep in mind they aren't a teacher you need to turn your work into either so could be a weekly status update unless you want to do it more frequently.
