Ways people acquire knowledge have evolved in step with the pace of technological progress. In today’s fast-paced environment, people in their formative age seek faster ways to get practical knowledge and skills that are readily applicable in real life. And it is not as much about the speed as it is about the cost. The rising  cost of college education  in the world, in particular in the USA, also makes young people look for practical training alternatives. Various online resources offer educational and training content; YouTube videos, Instagram, TikTok, Podcasts, blog posts, Twitter feeds, Ted Talks, etc. The learning possibilities are endless while learning curves are shorter. To make the case for online education still stronger, there are examples of world-famous college dropouts such as Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Bill Gates, or Mark Zuckerberg. Their example inspires and motivates would-be entrepreneurs to hone their skills and adapt to the real world through practical knowledge.

One Instagram account, Business Mentorship, has elevated the centuries-old mentorship tradition to new heights. The word “mentor” has come to our language from Homer’s poem Odyssey from almost 3000 years ago. Mentor was a friend of Odyssey whom he placed in charge of his son Alcimus at the time of the Trojan War. Mentor is thus known as a person who imparts wisdom to and shares his knowledge with a less-experienced person in his charge. Today’s millennials and Gen Z-ers often find themselves in a situation when they need advice and hard-earned knowledge from like-minded and trustworthy experienced individuals. Online mentorship comes as a solution.

Business Mentorship  account is a source of daily motivation to almost 900K followers. By focusing on personal independence, financial acumen, and the spirit of entrepreneurship, the account has preserved and raised to new heights the old spirit of mentorship. By making available on a daily basis success stories to its audience of nascent business people, Business Mentorship inspires them to change their lives for the better and become the better versions of themselves by    providing an online venue where trustworthy and highly successful mentors tell about their experiences and share advice with their growing audience. Short videos, memes, and quotes in areas of psychology, business, finance, and interpersonal relationships strike the right chord with Business Mentorship’s followers helping the young people make vital decisions and look at their lives and careers from a different perspective
