Can anybody here give me an suggestions on how to find a property development mentor as they are a lot harder to find than it sounds. All the property development books I have read have mentioned that all successful property developers have a mentor that has helped them along the way with the first property development. I have tried cold emailing and asking people for assistance but to date I have had zero replies. Approaching strangers seems not to be very effective . I have now applied for a scholarship with the Urban Develop Institute of Australia in an attempt to attend some of their functions and get to know a couple of the develops through that channel but this also seem like a long shot. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
